Summary

Chemical Vapor Infiltration (CVI) bonding of both fiber- and granular-reinforced ceramic composites provide a promising means of overcoming the intrinsic flaw-sensitive, brittle, and catastrophic failure mode of monolithic ceramics. Typical CVI SiC-matrix fibrous- and granular-substrate composite system properties, performance, and microstructure are described.
