Mechanical Property and Oxidation Behavior of LPS-SiC Materials


Article Preview

The microstructure and the mechanical property of liquid phase sintered (LPS) SiC materials with oxide secondary phases have been investigated. The strength variation of LPS-SiC materials exposed at the elevated temperatures has been also examined. LPS-SiC materials were sintered at the different temperatures using two types of Al2O3/Y2O3 compositional ratio. The characterization of LPS-SiC materials was investigated by means of SEM with EDS, three point bending test and indentation test. The LPS-SiC material with a density of about 3.2 Mg/m3 represented a flexural strength of about 800 MPa and a fracture toughness of about 9.0 MPa⋅√m.
