Layered Boron Carbide-Aluminum Composites with Large Changes in Microstructure
Melt infiltration of preforms prepared by sequential centrifugal casting and by tape casting and lamination has been accomplished using a short-time infiltration process that significantly suppresses reaction product formation. For layered materials produced via infiltration of laminated ceramic tapes, of particular interest is the effect that a large change in microstructure has on infiltration, phase formation and mechanical properties.
