Abstract

The major thrust underlying the processing of Fe-based composites has been directed towards improving the wear resistance of steel or castiron by incorporating some reinforcing phase, e.g., carbides, oxides, etc. The present article provides a review on the various synthesis routes of TiC reinforced Fe-based composites, i.e., powder metallurgy, conventional melting and casting, carbothermic reduction, combustion synthesis, aluminothermic reduction, electron beam radiation, laser surface melting, and plasma spray synthesis, highlighting the advantages and disadvantages associated with the different routes of synthesis.
