  • Investigates both SiC/SiC and oxide ceramics
  • Explains CCM processing: polymer infiltration and pyrolysis (PIP), chemical vapor infiltration (CVI), melt infiltration (MI) and their effects
  • Connects fiber architecture, reinforcements, and fabrication to mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties
  • Gives guidelines for modeling and testing ceramic composites, including time-dependent behaviors
  • For composite materials engineers, students, and scientists

This text brings together the technical elements needed to engineer ceramic matrix composites for aerospace and other applications.  It also explains the technical data that regulates all phases of ceramic composite processing. A major feature of the book is to show how variables in reinforcements, fabrication techniques, and materials affect the properties and quality level of ceramic composites, thereby offering a path forward for design engineers. It shows what materials work best, how fabric reinforcements should be configured, and the pros and cons of PIP, CVI, and MI. Mathematically, detailed guidance is given on how to model CMCs. To complement modeling, a full spectrum of test methods is provided, including ways to determine time-dependent behavior under loading conditions.


From Foreword by Dr. Mary Colby

Ceramic Matrix Composites provides a systematic overview of key attributes that designers and material developers must understand to utilize CMCs for aerospace applications…[This] is a high-caliber text with straightforward descriptions of CMC.


From Foreword by Dr. Allan Katz, Senior Program Manager, Air Force Research Laboratory

“This book is a most surely a significant contribution to (the) scientific and engineering knowledge-base for this important class of materials. And it is a book that can be appreciated by materials scientists, engineers, industry personnel, and students…”
