Title: Fabrication of ultrafine-grained Ti-(5-50 wt.%)Al2O3 composites using high-pressure torsion
Author: EDALATI, K., IWAOKA, H., HORITA, Z., TANAKA, M., HIGASHIDA, K., FUJIWARA, H., AMEYAMA, K.

Abstract: Ti-matrix composites reinforced with Al2O3 fractions of up to 50 wt.% were fabricated by cold consolidation of powder mixtures using high-pressure torsion (HPT). The grain size of the Ti matrix was reduced to ≈100 nm. A relative density greater than ≈99 % was attained for composites containing up to 30 % Al2O3 following the rule of mixture. The Vickers microhardness increased with an increase in the Al2O3 fraction but the bending stress and ductility decreased. The HPT-processed composites exhibited an abrupt increase in the hardness when they were annealed at 800-900 K, indicating a successful achievement of consolidation.
