Summary

Compositionally graded composite materials have been produced in Ti-B binary system by combining combustion synthesis with dynamic compaction. The experiments were recorded with a video camera to determine the combustion wave velocity. The X-ray diffraction analysis showed the presence of TiB and TiB2 along with unreacted titanium. Additionally, all individual layers of the graded composite were characterized seperately by Vickers indentation and the results were compared with that of conventional combustion synthesized composites. Electron microscope analysis revealed no evidence of cracks at the interfaces between layers.
