Effect of Processing on Oxidation of Ti5Si3

  • Andrew J. Thom (a1), Youngman Kim (a1) and Mufit Akinc (a1)


The mechanical properties and oxidation resistance of HIPed Ti5Si3 have been measured. HIPing submicron size powder compacts produces a crack-free, fine-grained microstructure with significantly higher hardness and toughness than a coarse-grained microstructure which contains microcracks within larger grains. Oxidation resistance is influenced by the grain size. Coarse-grained material has much lower mass gain than finegrained material in an oxidizing atmosphere and exhibits parabolic oxidation kinetics. The oxidation resistance of fine-grained material was measured between 700°C and 1000°C in air. Mass gain at 120 hours was measured to be 0.07 mg/cm2 at 700°C. At 900°C cracking of the scale leads to linear oxidation kinetics and significantly higher mass gain.
