The literature on preparation methods and signature features of composites based on transition-metal carbides, nitrides, and borides; covalent compounds (SiC, Si3N4); and Al2O3 reinforced with fibers and whisker crystals is reviewed. The main properties of the fibers and whisker crystals are studied.
