Paper Title:
Reinforcement of B4C Ceramics with Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes
  Abstract

Here we have prepared B4C/CNTs composites using the spark-plasma sintering (SPS) method. Mechanical property measurements reveal obvious enhancement confirming the fabrication of true B4C/CNTs composite materials with improved toughness properties.The addition of 1wt% CNTs in the B4C increased the fracture toughness by about 1.6 times from 2.5 to 4 MPa.m1/2 because the CNTs presented at the B4C grain boundaries, made the length of cracks shorten.
