Fabrication of Two Dimensional Silicon Carbide Fiber-Reinforced Silicon Carbide Composite by Electrophoretic Deposition and Hot-Pressing
In this study, Tyranno SA fiber cloth was coated with carbon black and SiC powder containing sintering aids by means of electrophoretic deposition method, and SiC/SiC composites with three different fiber volume fractions were fabricated using the Tyranno SA cloth by hot-pressing at 1700oC. The sufficient formation of the SiC matrix between each fiber could be observed. The composite fractured in non-brittle manner, and bending strength decreased with increasing fiber volume fraction. The crack propagation and fracture behavior depended on the fiber volume fraction. These differences in bending strength and fracture behavior would be caused by the difference in the interfacial bonding between fiber cloth and the matrix.
