Woodhead Publishing Series in Composites Science and Engineering No. 45
Ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) have proven to be useful for a wide range of applications because of properties such as their light weight, toughness and temperature resistance. This book summarises key recent research on types and processing of CMCs. The first part of the book reviews types such as functionally-graded, self-healing and hybrid CMCs. Other parts of the book deal with processing and applications as diverse as the energy and medical sectors.
