5 Porous matrix composites

  • Bilge Saruhan


Synthesis of an effective fiber coating may require higher temperatures which partly degrade the fiber. Moreover, full-coverage of fiber surface with a coating layer which serves as an interphase in the composites may be costly and difficult to realize.
