Reinforcements for advanced structural materials by high performance ceramic fibers has generated composites with outstanding properties. This paper will discuss the different aspects of synthesis, structural, microstructural, mechanical, and various other physical properties of silicon carbide fiber. Studies done on the fiber indicate that fibers can be synthesized by carbon two with individual filaments of thickness 5-7 μm, as a core material We have experimentally evaluated the operating conditions for ceramic fibers for good mechanical properties. We have established the effects of temperature, flow rate, composition on morphology, and rate of deposition. Different routes of deposition and surface treatment have been investigated. Other fibers also have been investigated.
