Ceramic Matrix Materials

  • Chapter

Abstract

In this chapter we briefly review the basic characteristics of ceramics (crystalline and noncrystalline) such as structure and properties, followed by a description of some conventional and nonconventional processing techniques for glass and ceramics. Finally, we examine the characteristics of some important ceramic matrix materials, to wit, glass, silicon carbide, silicon nitride, alumina, glass-ceramics, sialons, intermetallics, and carbon. Clearly, this will be but a cursory review of a very large field, but it should provide the reader with some relevant information on important ceramic matrix materials. For more details, the reader should refer to some of the Suggested Reading at the end of the chapter.
