The Obtaining of the Intermetallic Compounds of Ni-Al System by Self-Propagating High Temperature Synthesis and Thermal Explosion


Article Preview

The intermetallic compounds (IMC) of Ni-Al system exhibit interest both by theoretical and practical point of view: theoretically, due to particular aspects in relation to their synthesis and practically, due to their qualities that recommend them for the top industries such as, for example, the aerospace industry. In this paper are shown the results of researches on obtaining of high temperature compounds of Ni-Al system by self-propagating high temperature synthesis and thermal explosion, through the initiation of process at a temperature below the melting temperature of the easy fusible component.
