Abstract To enhance wear properties of titanium alloys, in situ titanium matrix composites (TMCs) were synthesized by a melting cast method with (TiC + TiB) volume fractions of 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10%. The results indicated that tribological properties of TMCs were increased owing to the dispersed distribution of (TiC + TiB) reinforcements, which improved the ability to resist the surface shear stress. Moreover, the stable transfer layer formed during wear reduced the shear strength and limited the direct interaction at tribo-pair interfaces to enhance surface hardness and wear resistance effectively. Consequently, the wear mechanism appeared to transitioned from the severe adhesive and oxidative wear gradually to the slight adhesion, abrasive, and oxidative wear along with reinforcements content increased.

Abstract The subsurface lattice rotation of polycrystalline and single crystal Cu-Ni-Sn bronze after pin-on-disc wear test were characterized using electron-backscattered diffraction and transmission electron microscopy. The majority of grains were sheared in the sliding direction with rotation axis around the transverse direction of the pin, exhibiting a weak shear texture. The orientation spread along the sliding direction increased with subsurface plastic strain, following a power law relatio...

Abstract This study presents the results of selective laser melting (SLM) of Ti6Al4V reinforced with 1% and 2.5% (wt%) nano yttria-stabilized zirconia (nYSZ). The bulk parts showed a very high building density which means that the melting parameters were optimal. X-ray diffraction analysis confirmed the existence of a near-alpha microstructure. No change in grains shape was noticed after the addition of nYSZ, columnar and lamellar grains remained present. The microhardness of Ti6Al4V was greatly...

The microhardness of micro-level TiC and TiB reinforcements in in-situ synthesized (TiC+TiB)/Ti-6Al-4V composite were investigated independently by spherical nanoindentation. The morphology of indentation on the matrix, reinforcements and the reinforcement / matrix interfaces were characterized by scanning electron microscope (SEM). The influence of cracks on the load-displacement curves and microhardness were analysed and discussed. The microhardness of TiC and TiB were calculated from the load...

Abstract Isothermal compression tests of as-cast 5vol.% (TiB w + TiC p )/Ti composites were conducted in the deformation temperature ranging from 900 to 1100 °C and strain rate ranging from 0.001 to 1.0 s −1 . The thermal deformation behavior and microstructure evolution mechanism of the material are studied to optimize the process parameters. Meanwhile, the flow stress-strain curves were measured. The activation energy decreases with increasing of compression temperature, which is related to th...

Abstract Hybrid (Ti5Si3 + TiCx) (x = 0.67) particles reinforced TC4 matrix composites were in-situ prepared by hot-press sintering, basing on the reactions between Ti3SiC2 and Ti. To research the effects of Ti3SiC2 content on the microstructures and mechanical properties, 1–10 wt% Ti3SiC2 were selected. When Ti3SiC2 content was less than 5 wt%, Si element dissolved in the matrix, and TiCx distributed in the matrix homogeneously. While the content exceeded 5 wt%, Si was precipitating as Ti5Si3 at...

ABSTRACTDry sliding tribological characterization of redmud particle-reinforced Al6061/alumina/graphite hybrid metal matrix composite (RM-AlHMMC) was investigated as per ASTM G99-05 using pin on disc experimental setup. Initially, hybrid composites were fabricated through stir casting process by varying the wt.% of redmud particle as 3, 7, and 11, and then the wear tests were carried out based on L27 orthogonal array. The experimental results revealed that 11 wt.% RM-AlHMMC showed maximum of 90%...

Abstract In the present work, the subsurface microstructure evolutions of Ti-29Nb-14Ta-4.5Zr (TNTZ) during high speed-sliding wear against Ti-6Al-4V extra-low interstitial has been studied in detail. Its correlation with surface features characteristics is also discussed. Progressive substructure development and mechanical twin formation have been proposed to be the main subsurface deformation mechanisms. The microstructure of the subsurface deformed regions consists of both primary and secondar...

This article describes and explains the tribological tests and methods for the evaluation of the performance of the brake friction materials. It starts by discussing the particularities of these materials and the variation of characterization tests, which can experimentally simulate many aspects of brake situation but with a large field of tribo-test, from standard to specific protocol. Examples of preparation, procedures, instrumentation, and analysis results for the tribological aspect testing...

Abstract It has been challenging to achieve good strength-ductility synergy in titanium metal matrix composites (Ti-MMCs). Herein we report a new Ti-MMC produced by multi-directional forging (MDF) undertaken in near β phase region. The developed composite exhibits a microstructure featuring dynamically recrystallized (DRX) ultrafine α-Ti matrix with uniformly dispersed micrometer sized TiB whiskers and submicrometer sized Y2O3 particles. This unique microstructure renders the composite an except...

TB8 (Ti-13.58Mo-2.15Nb-3.27A1-0.21Si) is a metastable β titanium alloy with excellent mechanical properties. In this paper, TiC/TB8 and TiC + TiB/TB8 titanium matrix composites (TMCs) were prepared by spark plasma sintering (SPS). In addition, the cyclic oxidation interval measurement method was used to compare the high-temperature oxidation behavior of TB8 titanium alloys with different volume fractions of TiC and TiC + TiB reinforced TB8 composites. Studies have shown that after cyclic oxidati...

Abstract In-situ TiB reinforced titanium matrix composites (TMCs) were fabricated by selective laser melting (SLM) of ball-milled Ti6Al4V–TiB2 powders. Optimized SLM processing and stress relief annealing were applied to obtain crack-free and fully dense composites. TiB reinforcement is mainly present in the form of whisker clusters and exhibits a quasi-continuous distribution in TMC1 (2 vol%TiB) while a full-continuous distribution in TMC2 (5 vol%TiB). The distribution of TiB whisker clusters i...

Abstract The incorporation of graphene-based nanodispersoids in ceramic coatings is known to enhance the wear behavior of these materials. In this study, for the first time, alumina/graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs) coatings were deposited through Suspension High Velocity Oxy-Fuel (SHVOF) thermal spray on Al2O3/TiC substrate composites, which were laser microtextured with grid and line surface patterns. Dense coatings with around 8−10 μm thickness were obtained by spraying alumina suspension contain...

Abstract TiCx-reinforced CrTi4-based composite coating was successfully prepared by laser cladding technology with coaxial Ti6Al4V/NiCr-Cr3C2/CeO2 mixed powders, and their microstructure and element distribution were studied. The results showed that vacant titanium carbide (TiCx) and solid solution (CrTi4) were synthesised in-situ. The distribution of C was differentiated in the TiCx. Al and V were uniformly distributed in the matrix phase, while Ni and Cr were segregated. Ce and O were recrysta...

In this paper, Ti2AlNb-based composites with different concentrations of Ag were fabricated by ball milling and spark plasma sintering (SPS). Microstructural evolution and phase compositions of the composites were further analyzed. The MS-T3001 friction wear tester was used to evaluate the friction performance of the Ag/Ti2AlNb self-lubricating composites. Results showed that the composites exhibit better anti-friction and anti-wear performance comparing with pure Ti2AlNb alloy. As the Ag wt.% i...
