Self-Propagating High-Temperature Synthesis


The results of an investigation into the mechanism of nitriding the ferrosilicoaluminum complex alloy under isothermal and nonisothermal conditions are presented. It is shown that the nitriding process of ferrosilicoaluminum is complex and multistage. It is established that, when nitriding the ferroalloy, the primary product is AlN; then Si3N4 is synthesized and Si3N4-based solid solutions are formed. The influence of the main parameters of self-propagating high-temperature synthesis on the velocity and degree of nitriding the ferrosilicoaluminum alloy is investigated. Critical parameters of the combustion process are revealed.
