Summary

The results of an assessment of the status of ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) technology in the United States and abroad, which was conducted by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Ceramics Information Analysis Center (CIAC), are presented and discussed. Evaluation and judgment are given on several important issues concerning CMCs technology so as to provide answer to the question: “What do we have to show for the overall U.S. Government R & D investments of roughly 250 million on CMCs in the last ten years”
