Abstract : The authors study the rate of vaporization up to 2000 degrees K of ceramics based on silicon carbide and alloyed with refractory metals. Resistance of ceramics to erosion was also studied at 2000 degrees K. It was shown that intense vaporization of ceramics begins at 1950 degrees K in air and that such materials can function up to that temperature. (Author)
