Summary

Pure oxide ceramic composites, e.g., alumina / alumina offer a great potential as materials for high temperature applications and use in oxidizing atmospheres. In the present work, a new technique, using reaction bonded alumina (RBAO), is presented to form composites with sapphire fiber reinforcement. The need for a weak interface to allow crack deflection and fiber /matrix debonding is discussed.
