There are some  superior mechanical properties such as high modulus, high hardness, high high melting point, and great resistance to corrosion that can be created by using ceramic materials, ceramic materials have been attractive as revolutionary materials for high temperature applications and usage. Ttitanium carbide and aluminide have developed as two of the most fascinating ceramics. It has high strength and durability and also less expensive to be produced.  TiC-Al2O3 can be manufactured from a less expensive material (TiO2) than it is to produce it from its constituent powders. The combustion synthesis (CS) technology has significant advantages for synthesizing TiC-Al2O3 since it produces a powerful exothermic reaction and has a shorter reaction time. The goal of this study was to assess the combustion synthesis of TiC-Al2O3 as well as the effect of reactant proportions on the burning process and the morphology of synthesized samples. In an air combustion chamber, the combustion technique was carried out. To start the CS, an arc flame was employed as the igniting mechanism. The micro - structural properties of synthetic items have been studied. This study's findings might be utilized to develop a high-performance ceramic material created from low-cost materials utilizing an efficient method.
