The (Nb)/Nb3Si eutectic alloys in the Nb-Si binary and Nb-Ti-Si ternary systems were unidirectionally solidified in an optical floating zone melting furnace. The effect of solidification rates on microstructures of the alloys is investigated. The coupled growth of (Nb) and Nb3Si is observed in the binary alloy solidified at 10 mm/h. The ternary alloys exhibit the development of discontinuous (Nb) particles within the Nb3Si matrix. The unidirectionally solidified alloys show improved fracture toughness and enhanced high temperature compressive strength as compared with the arc-melted counterparts. The role of an aligned eutectic microstructure in toughening is discussed from the existing models based on the crack bridging and the crack deflection.
