Summary

Ceramic fiber-ceramic matrix composites are of interest because of their potentially higher strength and toughness. A vacuum-forming technique was used to fabricate low-density structures from SiC fibers. These fibrous structures were then infiltrated using chemical vapor deposition. Matrices of Si3N4 and SiC have been deposited.
