Part of the Materials Science Research book series (MSR, volume 11)


Despite technological importance, limited information is available on the correlation of major processing variables with the sintering behavior and microstructure development of aluminum silicates containing mullite as the principal phase. Recent studies illustrate the excellent mechanical properties of mullite and the importance of controlled processing in achieving desired properties.1, 2
