VTechWorks staff will be away for the Thanksgiving holiday beginning at noon on Wednesday, November 22, through Friday, November 24, and will not be replying to requests during this time. Thank you for your patience, and happy holidays!
Development of SiC whisker/chopped SiC fiber reinforced (CaÃµ0Ãµ.Ãµ6,MgÃµ0Ãµ.Ãµ4)Zrb4s(POb4s)b6s ceramic matrix composites
SiC whisker reinforced (Cao.6' MgO•4)Zr4(P04)6 (CMZP) matrix composites containing 10, 20, and 30 vol % whiskers were produced using a glass encapsulated hot isostatic pressing (HIPing) technique. The best HIPing temperature, pressure, and time conditions to optimize composite density and strength were determined to be 1050°C, 103 MPa, and 0.25 h.
