  The present work compares the 2D and 3D distribution of TiB2 particles in a semisolid processed Al-4.5%Cu-5wt.% TiB2 in-situ composite prepared by flux assisted synthesis. The composite was synthesized by the reaction of K2TiF6 and KBF4 salts in molten Al-4.5Cu alloy held at 800 oC for an hour. The extent ...  Read More
