    • Abstract

       

      The application of self-propagating high-temperature synthesis (SHS) to prepare a few borides of titanium was investigated. Using the plane wave propagation mode, the synthesis of titanium borides in the cold-pressed cylindrical specimens of the component powder mixtures was effected and was studied as a function of boron content in the initial mix and the specimen size. SHS reaction in compacts having diam. of 6 mm or less and high bulk density could not be initiated and/or sustained and was considered to be a result of rapid heat dissipation.
