Abstract

In this chapter, we examine the elastic and physical properties of ceramic matrix composites. In particular, we give a micromechanical description of the different elastic constants, thermal expansion coefficients, thermal conductivity, density, etc. in terms of the same constants or of the individual components and the geometric arrangement of the components.
