    Abstract

    In this paper general concepts about the centrifugal thermit (C-T) process with few illustrative examples are presented. Thermit reactions are carried out under the effect of centrifugal force. The application of centrifugal force in these processes helps in the quick separation of the products of the thermit reaction, if they are of different densities and produced in molten state. If the magnitude of the centrifugal force is inadequate, the products are produced as mixtures. A detailed description of the process carried out such as synthesizing the required product phases, insitu consolidation and castings of aerospace components are reviewed. The advantages and limitations of these methods have been analyzed by13; considering the property versus degree of conversion dependencies of several reactant systems. A brief13; introduction to the applications of combustion-synthesized products is followed by a discussion of the methods for fabrication. A few novel techniques based on C-T process, used in aerospace applications are elaborated.
