Abstract :
Nb-16Si-24Ti-6Cr-6Al-2Hf-xCe (x=0, 0.05, 0.1, 0.25, 0.5, 1 (%, atom fraction)) in situ composites were prepared by arc melting. The microstructure and the effect of rare earth element cerium on 1250 °C oxidation resistance of the composites were investigated with scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray energy disperse spectrum (EDS), as well as X-ray diffraction (XRD). The experimental results showed that the high temperature oxidation resistance of the alloy was improved by adding a proper amount of cerium (Ce). The effect of Ce was considered as the concurrent of the following three factors: first, the oxide of Ce formed in the interface reduced the internal oxidation rate: second, the lath shaped oxide containing Ce increased the cracking resistance and reduced the expansion of the oxide scale; and third, the decrease of the silicide volume fraction on account of Ce addition reduces the power of the sample resisting oxygen penetration.
