Toughening Ceramics by Laminating Composite Elements
Crack growth has been studied in a system of silicon carbide sheets separated by graphite interfaces, made by coating and compacting together thin sheets made from silicon carbide powder. The forming of simple shapes using this method is demonstrated.
