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... Materials and Surface Engineering: Research and Development
This book, the second in the Woodhead Publishing Reviews: Mechanical Engineering Series, is a collection of high quality articles (full research articles, review articles, and cases studies) with a special emphasis on research and development materials and surface engineering and its applications. Surface engineering techniques are being used...
