Aluminium composites have a great potential because of their high strength-to-weight ratio. Carbides will in the future be powerful reinforcements. To be able to manufacture these it is of importance to know the thermodynamic properties and the kinetic limitations. The objective of this investigation is to study the equilibria between the carbides occurring in the Al-Ti-C system as well as the initial precipitation and dissolution behaviour of these carbides.
