Microstructural development of Mo(ss) + T2 two-phase alloys
The microstnicture evolution involving Mo-B-Si as-solidified alloys with compositions in the Mo solid-solution(ss) + T2 two-phase field has been examined following arc-melting and rapid solidification processing (RSP). Several solidification pathways in the arc-melted alloys have been identified. Compositional segregation during conventional solidification results in the formation of additional phases such as borides in the arc-melted alloys which require a prolonged solid-state annealing to obtain equilibrated two-phase microstructures. The RSP methods employed, splat-quenching (SQ) and powder drop tube processing (DTP), allow for significant microstructural modifications that facilitate the attainment of uniform dispersions of Mo(ss) phase in a T2 phase matrix.
