2 Self-propagating High-temperature Synthesis(SHS) SHS is a science-intensive process. Its comprehension requires erudition in thermodynamics, chemical kinetics, general and structural macrokinetics, materials science, and other allied fields of knowledge.

21 Conclusions (1) The heat of self-propagation reaction and electric field induced is the driving force of mass transferring, which promoted the generating of the product of Ni 3 Ti and Fe 5 C 2. (2) From Fig. 14., the imposed electric field makes the ions and free electrons of metal move in greater speed, which impels the temperature of the system increasing and improve the plenitude of reaction and the uniformity of products by accelerating the diffusion speed of electrons and ions. (3) From Fig. 16., the field distribution on reactants and products makes high temperature in the front edge, which overcomes the thermodynamic limits of SHS and actuates the reaction to proceed, increases reaction speed. (4)From Fig. 17., it is shown that the velocity of the combustion wave is linearly proportional to magnitude of electric field.
22 1) It is essential to understand the effect of the electric fields on the processes parameters such as density, combustion temperature, burning velocity, extent of conversion, composition, structure, properties of SHS products, etc. 2) Additional experimental and theoretical studies should be carried out about the effect of the electric fields on product of FGM.
