Abstract

The presented results provide a phenomenological description of the structural evolution of the wave of a Ti and C powder mixture combustion. They show that further progress in the understanding of the mechanisms of combustion and the structure formation is linked to the solution of two problems: 1) What is the mechanism underlying the generation of carbide particles? 2) Which kinetic laws and mechanisms govern the growth of carbide particles? It can be assumed that the noted characteristics of structural transformations are also observed in other systems of the type metal-carbon, metal-boron. This is indicated by the similarity of the morphology of products and of some combustion characteristics
