Description / Abstract:

Ceramic matrix composites represent a new class of non-brittle refractory materials for harsh and extreme environments, characterized by high thermal stability, corrosion resistance and strength-to-weight ratio. This makes them predestined for use in aerospace, ground transportation, mechanical engineering and power generation. The editor and authors of this handbook are renowned experts from EADS, MT Aerospace, NASA, Porsche, Schunk and Snecma, as well as research institutes in Europe, the USA and Japan, who provide here a comprehensive overview of the current status of CMCs, focusing on applications. A valuable information source for scientists, engineers and technicians, as well as students, and a general reference for professionals in materials science and engineering.
