Article Preview

Effect of whisker orientation on mechanical properties of hydroxyapatite-SiCw composite bioceramics was studied in this paper. Experiment results show that the mechanical properties of the material are the best when the tensile stress acted on the composite material is parallel with the hot pressing plane or the shearing stress is normal to the hot pressing plane, and they are the worst when the tensile stress acted on the composite material is normal to the hot pressing plane or the shearing stress is parallel with the hot pressing plane. This will offer great guidance for practical applications of the hydroxyapatite-SiCw composite bioceramics.
