Preparation and Properties of 2D Carbon Cloth Reinforced Ultra-High Temperature Ceramic Matrix Composites
In this paper the preparation of carbon fiber reinforced ultra-high temperature ceramic matrix composites was reported. Polymer infiltration and pyrolysis process was used to prepare 2D C/TaC-SiC, C/NbC-SiC, and C/ZrC-SiC composites. The fracture strengths of all the samples were around 300MPa and toughness around 10MPa-m1/2. Standard oxyacetylene torch tests (>3000°C, 30s) showed that the minimum ablative rate of 2D C/SiC-ZrC was as low as 0.026 mm/s, much smaller than that of 2D C/SiC composites (0.088mm/s).
