Abstract : This databook is organized into sections which comprehensively cover the mechanical, thermal, and physical properties of whisker reinforced ceramic matrix composites. Data and information on ceramic matrices such as carbides, nitrides, oxides and glass-ceramics reinforced with ceramic whiskers are presented in this databook as evaluated and analyzed look-up tables and figures. The databook presents all available materials characterization data from the open literature, company literature, and other sources in a well organized, evaluated, and analyzed manner readily available for engineering calculations, material evaluation and characterization and, to some extent, for design purposes.
