Summary

Liquid infiltration into a porous preform consisting of the intended reinforcement material Is suggested as a viable route for making ceramic-matrix composites. Requirements for the infiltration and the preform structure are discussed. The structure and properties of a model CaF2-matrix composite are presented.
