Abstract [en]

NbSi2 monoliths were prepared by self-propagating high temperature synthesis (SHS) and hot pressing (HP) and their oxidation behavior was investigated at various temperatures (823-1123 K) in air. The combustion mode of SHS reaction was steady state combustion, and the combustion product was single-phase NbSi2. Oxidation studies show that the highest mass gain was 0.95675 kg m(-2) at 1023 K. In cyclic oxidation, the oxidation rate was reduced and the mass gain was only 0.15507 kg m(-2). A dense protective amorphous SiO2 scale formed at 823 K and 923 K whereas a porous multilayer SiO2 and alpha/beta-Nb2O5 oxide scales formed at and above 1023 K and spalled off. Pest oxidation of NbSi2 monoliths was not observed in hot pressed NbSi2 monoliths.
