Description:

Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
Significant progress has been made over the past 30 years in handling silicon-based ceramics such as silicon nitride, silicon carbide, SiAlON, silicides and composites. A better understanding of processing parameters in various forming techniques, and of microstructure-property relationships, has led to substantial improvements in thermomechanical performance and reliability; as well as in cost reduction.

The book is divided into four comprehensive sections: the first chapter is devoted to industrial applications, with both new and on-going applications being introduced. The second chapter presents the various traditional and new techniques being used to process Si-based ceramics and composites. Some classical aspects of grain growth and sintering are presented, as well as relatively new approaches such as the SPS process. The third chapter covers microstructural developments in various Si-based ceramics, and particularly their effect upon mechanical performance and reliability. The fourth chapter discusses the thermo-mechanical and thermo-chemical behaviors of Si-based ceramics; with particular emphasis being placed on environmental barrier coatings. Altogether, the book accurately summarizes the current state-of-the-art of our understanding of these materials, and covers up-to-date developments in silicon-based ceramics such as silicon nitride, silicon carbide, SiAlON, silicides, and composites. Industrial case-studies and applications are addressed with regard to the exploration of new frontiers.
