Effects of Rapid Heat Treatment on Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Ti2AlC/TiAl Composite
In this paper Ti2AlC/TiAl composites were in-situ fabricated by spark plasma sintering (SPS) and then the effects of rapid heat-treatment on microstructure and mechanical properties of Ti2AlC/TiAl composites were investigated. After rapid heat-treatment the microstructure of TiAl matrix was significantly transformed from the near γ microstructure to duplex microstructure. Ti2AlC particles effectively refined the γ phase grains and the α2/γ lamellar colony microstructure. For the Ti2AlC/TiAl composite after rapid heat-treatment at 1200°C, the bending strength and fracture toughness reached 956.8MPa and 22.8MPa·m1/2, respectively.
