The Machinability of 3D-C/SiC Composites
Carbon fiber reinforced silicon carbide (C/SiC) composites are considered as one of the most potential thermal structure materials. However, the non-machinability of the three dimension woven fabric restrict the wide application of the c/sic composites. In this paper, we discuss the effect of machinability on the properties of 3D-c/sic composites, such as the modulus, mechanical properties, and so on. The results show that c/sic composites exhibit excellent mechanical properties after machinability, an extensive microstructure study is also carried out to understand the properties of the composites.
