Abstract : Studies on elements required for oxidation resistant composite materials have been carried out in four areas: (1) investigations of moisture resistant sealant glasses for carbon-carbon composite materials and their interactions with oxidation barrier coatings. (2) investigations of the effects of electrochemical modification of carbon surfaces on the wetability of these surfaces by sealant glasses. (3) investigations of alkoxides sol-gel precursors of ceramic materials. (4) investigations of the formation of ceramic fibers through the oxidation of inter-calculated carbon fibers. Keywords: Oxidation resistant composite materials.
