Micro Abrasive Jet Machining of Silicon Carbide (SiC) Fiber Reinforced Ceramic Matrix Composite


Article Preview

Abesive jet machining (AJM) of silicon carbide fiber reinforced silicon carbide ceramic composite (SiC/SiC CMC) was carried out with various size of silicon carbide fine abresives. A micro indentation experiment was connected to evaluate of maerial removal mechanism by the particle impact. Results showed that the machine rate was different depending on the particle size and that inteface fracture (debonding) has influenced on the material removal mechanim. Relationship between structure scale of the SiC/SiC CMC and the impact media size was discussed.
