Summary

Various architectures of fibrous monolithic ceramics were fabricated in the Si3N4/BN system consisting of uniaxially aligned polycrystalline cells of Si3N4 separated by cell boundaries of BN. Room temperature flexural properties of several Si3N4/BN fibrous monoliths and a novel three layer Si3N4/BN/Si3N4 fibrous monolith were investigated. A comparison was also made between the high temperature flexural properties of a Si3N4/BN fibrous monolith and a new material in which Si3N4 cells were alloyed with SiC.
