Alumina Whiskers Formation during Self-Propagation High-Temperature Synthesis
In this paper, the SHS process was accomplished using titanium dioxide and aluminum powders as raw materials. It was found that the combustion process exhibited the self-spiral combustion mode and alumina whisker had formed. The morphology, microstructure and growth mechanism of alumina whisker were investigated.
