Abstract Titanium tin carbide (Ti2SnC) is a novel layered ternary compound. The ab initio calculations on the electronic structure and bonding properties indicated that Ti2SnC exhibit anisotropy of chemical bonding and properties. The electrical conductivity parallel to the basal plane is metallic and is much higher than that in c-axis. Thus Ti2SnC material in two-dimensional quasi-infinite form with the sheet surface parallel to the basal plane will show superior properties and have diverse…

ABSTRACT MAX phase materials possess an optimum combination of both high-temperature oxidation and corrosion resistance, and superior mechanical and tribological properties. As a consequence, they
Deformation of polycrystalline Ti2AlC under compression
Abstract  Deformation of polycrystalline Ti2AlC under room and high temperature compression was investigated. The results demonstrated that Ti2AlC was damage tolerant at room temperature and the

Microstructure and mechanism of damage tolerance for Ti3SiC2 bulk ceramics
Abstract Titanium silicon carbide (Ti3SiC2) is a damage tolerance material that is expected to be used in a number of high temperature applications. In this work, the microstructure and damage
The compressive property and brittle-to-ductile transition of Ti3SiC2 ceramics
Abstract Compressive tests of polycrystalline Ti3SiC2 were performed from room temperature to 1423 K at strain rates of 1×10–4 s–1 and 2.5×10–5 s–1, respectively. The effect of strain rates on
Ternary Compounds and Phase Equilibria in Ti‐Ge‐C and Ti‐Ge‐B
Bulk samples of nearly single-phase Ti{sub 2}GeC and Ti{sub 3}GeC{sub 2} were fabricated using a synthesis process similar to one developed to produce bulk Ti{sub 3}SiC{sub 2}. Elemental powders were
Self-interaction correction to density-functional approximations for many-electron systems

Unified approach for molecular dynamics and density-functional theory.
The approach extends molecular dynamics beyond the usual pair-potential approximation, thereby making possible the simulation of both covalently bonded and metallic systems, and permits the application of density-functional theory to much larger systems than previously feasible.
Self-Consistent Equations Including Exchange and Correlation Effects
From a theory of Hohenberg and Kohn, approximation methods for treating an inhomogeneous system of interacting electrons are developed. These methods are exact for systems of slowly varying or high
