Title

Reactive Processing, Microstructure, and Mechanical Properties of Al2O3-MoSi2 Composites

Abstract

Composites of Al2O3 and Mo intermetallic compounds, specifically MoSi2, Mo(Si,Al)2, and Mo3Al8, were fabricated from Mo-Al-aluminosilicate powder mixtures by reactive hot pressing. The ceramic-to-intermetallic ratio and the composition of the intermetallic phase were varied systematically by controlling the molar ratio of the reactant powders or by using different aluminosilicate precursors. Composite microstructures were characterized by scanning electron microscopy. Mechanical behavior was evaluated by determining 4-point bend strength, Young's modulus, hardness, and coefficient of thermal expansion.
