Abstract

The applications of carbon allotrope-reinforced Ti-based composites have witnessed enormous expansion in recent times owing to their light weight and competitive properties. However, a consistent controversy still exists on the process of in-situ TiC formation (during powder preparation, reinforcement dispersion and synthesis), its site within the composite and particularly the role it plays on the properties of the bulk composite. Although some authors have opined that the presence of TiC in the bulk composite enhances its overall properties, others hold a contrary opinion. Hence, this current study is aimed at reviewing the positions of the previous studies on this seemingly controversial subject up to date; with a view to broadening the available knowledge base on this crucial area of interest.
