Part of the Army Materials Technology Conference Series book series (volume 1)


In this paper I would like to review our experiences in the evolution of hot-pressed silicon nitride over the past ten or so years, to look at what progress we have made and what progress we haven’t made in the hope that this review will help to guide us in our efforts in the future.
