Tissue Engineering Using Ceramics and Polymers Drawing a distinguished editors and international team of contributors, this book reviews the latest research and advances and how they can be used to develop treatments for disease states. An innovative and up-to-date reference, it begins with a discussion of general issues and then moves on to review characterization. Building on this foundation,... Ceramic Matrix Composites: Fiber Reinforced Ceramics and their Applications
Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) represent a relatively new class of quasiductile
ceramic materials. They are characterized by carbon or ceramic fi bers embedded
in ceramic matrices (oxide or non - oxide) with comparatively low bonding
forces between the fi bers and the matrix. These weak intefaces, in combination
with a porous...
