Casting and Modeling of Titanium Matrix Composites

Abstract:

Article Preview

The aim of this study is to establish the net-shape forming of titanium matrix composites (TMCs) shot sleeve for Al alloys die-casting using a casting route. In-situ synthesis and casting of TMCs were carried out in a vacuum induction melting furnace. The synthesized (TiC+TiB) TMCs were examined using an scanning electron microscopy and electron probe micro-analyzer. The thermo-physical variables estimated by casting process were applied to the modeling of TMCs shot-sleeve casting using the Magmasoft®. The results of the investment casting and modeling of TMCs confirm that the casting route can be an effective approach for the economic net-shape forming of TMCs shot sleeve.
