Summary

A perspective history of ceramic matrix composites is presented in context of recent developments in ceramic science and engineering. After a classification scheme is given, logical approaches to property engineering are addressed by critical examination of the discrete phase, the matrix, and the interaction between the discrete phase and the matrix. Specific examples such as the use of amphibole fibers and mica-toughened aluminum oxide are used to elucidate the analysis.
