Abstract

Virtually all ceramic matrix composites require an interface coating between the fibers and matrix to achieve the desired mechanical performance. To date, the most effective interface materials for non-oxide matrix composites have been carbon and boron nitride. They are, however, susceptible to oxidation at elevated temperatures, and thus under many envisioned operating environments they will fail, possibly allowing oxidation of the fibers as well, adversely affecting mechanical behavior. Current efforts are directed toward developing stable interface coating, which include oxides and silicon carbide with appropriate thermomechanical properties.
