Abstract

Carbide-reinforced Ti2AlNb matrix composites were spark plasma sintered at 1100 °C by incorporating CNTs into single-B2-phase Ti-22Al-25Nb powders. The as-SPSed alloys were solution treated and then aged in different phase regions. By kinetics analysis and energy-dispersive spectroscopy, it is found carbon will stabilize α2 phase during solution treatment, and the formation of carbide results in the Nb-depleted regions, which further induces the formation of curly B2 + O Widmanstätten structure during quenching. Different from the general Widmanstätten structure in the aged Ti2AlNb alloy, the remained α2 will consume the B2 within the Widmanstätten structure, when the carbon-added alloy is aged in B2 + O phase region. Compared to the alloy without CNTs, the Vickers hardness of the aged carbon-added Ti2AlNb alloy is increased significantly, which is related to the uniform and abundant columnar carbides within the O-phase matrix.
