Processing High-Temperature Material Research Summary


Fully dense, large-grained MoSi2 samples can be fabricated by self-propagating high-temperature synthesis (SHS) and rapid consolidation using the Ceracon process. Using this process, several major limitations associated with SHS/hot isostatic pressing to fabricate MoSi2 are overcome.
