Ceramic Matrix Composites

Description:

Ceramic matrix composites are under intense investigation internationally to find their useful application in higher temperature structures, particularly in aerospace propulsion systems.

Keywords:
The limitation of monolithic ceramic components for strength and fracture toughness are well known. Ceramic composites on the other hand provide greater capabilities in strain tol-erance, fracture toughness and strength characteristics. As a result, interest in processing, microstructure, analysis and design applications continue to evolve for this class of compos-ites. The continuous fiber CMCs are aimed at application into higher performance components in the propulsion system. On the other hand, the whisker reinforced CMCs have broader appli-cation range in the industrial and automotive area.
In this volume, processing advances and application experience of CMCs are discussed by a number of researchers. In addition, mi-crostructural and mechanical behavior of CMCs are presented as a complementary section. These papers present a coherent view of some of the recent advances in the field.
