    • Abstract

       

      In situ Ti$_2$AlC/TiAl composite was fabricated by hot-pressing method via the reaction system of Ti$_3$AlC$_2$ and Ti-Al pre-alloyed powders at low temperature of 1150$^{\circ}$C. The composite mainly consisted of TiAl, Ti$_3$Al and Ti$_2$AlC phases. Fine Ti$_2$AlC particles were homogeneously distributed and dispersed in the matrix. Ti$_2$AlC played the significant role of deflecting and blunting the cracks and contributed to improve the mechanical properties of the composite. The Vickers hardness, flexural strength and fracture toughness were 6.2 GPa, $993.9\pm 50.8$ MPa and $6.7\pm 0.3$ MPa m$^{1/2}$, respectively.
