Abstract : This handbook is organized into fifteen chapters which comprehensively cover the topic of continuous fiber ceramic composites (CFCCs) from theoretical considerations through raw materials and processing to design, applications, and property topics. Perhaps processing science and technology appropriately receive the most emphasis in this handbook since the development of processing technologies has most significantly advanced CFCC material properties and applications. Topics such as chemical vapor infiltration, fiber/matrix interfaces, polymer pyrolysis, directed metal oxidation, and particulate infiltration are covered in a comprehensive manner. Theory of fiber reinforcement, mechanical and thermal properties, test methods, and design methodology are also covered in detail.
