Abstract [en]

Combustion synthesis was adopted to successfully synthesize molybdenum-silicon-chromium (Mo-Si-Cr) alloys by the mode of self-propagating high-temperature synthesis (SHS). The experimental study of combustion synthesis of Mo-Si-Cr alloys was conducted on elemental powder compacts. Powder compacts with nominal compositions including MoSi2, (Mo0.95Cr0.05)Si-2, (Mo0.90Cr0.10)Si-2, (Mo0.85Cr0.15)Si-2, (Mo0.80Cr0.20)Si-2, (Mo0.75Cr0.25)Si-2 and (Mo0.20Cr0.30)Si-2 were employed in combustion synthesis experiments. The combustion mode, combustion temperature, flame-front propagation velocity and product structure were investigated. The results showed that Mo-Si-Cr alloys were synthesized by an unsteady state combustion mode with a spiral-trajectory reaction front. The peak combustion temperature reduced with the addition of Cr to Mo-Si system. The flame-front propagation velocity decreased with an increase in Cr content of the powder compact. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) results showed that the crystal structure of the combustion product changed from CIIb-type structure (Mo0.90Cr0.10)Si-2 to C40-type structure (Mo0.80Cr0.15)Si-2 with increase in Cr content of Mo-Cr-Si alloys. The intensities of diffraction peaks of the C40-type phase gradually increased with increase in Cr content.
