Summary

The process of ceramic composites has experienced exceptional growth in the last 15 years. Approaches to processing have focused on traditional ceramic consolidation techniques, extensions of existing composite technologies, as well as more novel methodologies such as liquid metal oxidation and vapor infitration. In this overview, state-of-the-art processing technologies will be discussed in a generic sense and examples of CMC available either commercially or in research quantities will be given. Comparisons between the performance of the resultant composites will be made and related to their microstructures and constituent material properties.
