Synthesis of intermetallics for high temperature structural applications: (Mn5Si3)16H crystal structure

  • P. B. Celis
  • K. Ishizaki


The Zr-Si system was chosen to study the potentiality of the (Mn5Si3)16H crystal structure for high temperature structural applications. A procedure was devised for the synthesis of intermetallics that have very high melting points. By hot isostatic pressing in a glass capsule, highly densified samples of Zr5Si3 were produced. Mechanical properties were measured. This compound is a good candidate for high temperature structural applications.
