Processing of Ceramic Matrix Composites

  • Chapter

Abstract

In this chapter we describe some of the important processing techniques for fabricating ceramic matrix composites. Among the items that one should take into account for choosing reinforcement and matrix materials are:

  • melting point

  • volatility

  • density

  • elastic modulus

  • coefficient of thermal expansion

  • creep characteristics

  • strength

  • fracture toughness

  • compatibility between fiber and matrix

    • chemical compatibility

    • thermal compatibility (should be able to withstand high temperature excursions)

    • compatibility with the environment, internal as well as external. The external compatibility mainly involves oxidation and evaporation characteristics.

Keywords

  • Silicon Nitride
  • Ceramic Matrix
  • Ceramic Matrix Composite
  • Electrophoretic Deposition
  • Residual Porosity

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
