Abstract

The forcespinning (FS) technique is used here to produce titanium dioxide and carbon composite fibers, as well as zirconium dioxide and carbon composite fibers. Subsequent carbothermal reduction of these fibers facilitated the creation of titanium carbide and zirconium carbide fibers respectably. The role of FS parameters such as the revolutions per minute (RPM) and the collector distance employed is examined. Sol-gel chemistry is used to produce the solutions for the initial FS, and the control of sol-gel chemistry and its effect on the end fiber products is also investigated. The effect of these variables is examined using X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, and thermogravimetric analysis. The results confirm that titanium and zirconium carbide fibers can be produced using the sol-gel and FS techniques.
