R-Curve Behavior of Machinable SiC/h-BN Nano-Composites
SiC/h-BN nano-composites powder was synthesized using an in-situ reaction method and SiC/h-BN nano-composites were fabricated by hot-pressing. Damage resistance and R-curve behavior of machinable SiC/h-BN nano-composites was evaluated using the indentation- strength-in-bending technique and compared with that of SiC/h-BN micro-composites and monolithic SiC. The results showed that SiC/h-BN nano-composites have better damage resistance and R-curve behavior than SiC/h-BN micro-composites and monolithic SiC.
