Abstract : Composite synthesis efforts during this period were directed: (a) to improve the composite's bulk density, and (b) to understand the displacement reaction process. A higher hot pressing pressure (45 MPa) was used to increase the composite density. The oxygen content of the TiC powder and hot pressing schedule were varied to observe their effects on the displacement reaction and types of phases formed. p2
