Preparation and Morphology of C/C-SiC Composites by Si Melt Infiltration


Article Preview

Two different types of carbon fibre bundles were used for filament winding to obtain C/C preforms. C/C-SiC composites were produced from the C/C preforms by a silicon melt infiltration technique. The effect of the type of carbon fibre bundle on the mechanical and thermal properties of the resultant C/C-SiC composites was compared. The spun fiber preform yields C/C-SiC composites of better mechanical properties than the unidirectional continuous fiber preform. The strength of the composites from the SFP was 1.8 times higher than that from the CFP. The flexural strength and the O-ring strength of the composites from the SFP with a density of 2.35 g/cm3 were about 160 MPa and 170 MPa, respectively.
