ΜΜ11 | CERAMIC MATRIX COMPOSITES
Μεταπτυχιακός Κύκλος Σπουδών | Κεραμικά Σύνθετα Υλικά
Ceramic materials in general have a very attractive package of properties: high strength and high stiffness at very high temperatures, chemical inertness, low density, and so on. This attractive package is marred by one deadly flaw, namely, an utter lack of toughness. They are prone to catastrophic failures in the presence of flaws (surface or internal). They are extremely susceptible to thermal shock and are easily damaged during fabrication and or service. It is therefore understandable that an overriding consideration in ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) is to toughen the ceramics by incorporating fibers in them and thus exploit the attractive high-temperature strength and environmental resistance of ceramic materials without risking a catastrophic failure.
Aim of the course is the understanding of the basic concept of ceramic matrix composites and how ceramic matrix combined with fiber reinforcement increases fracture toughness and contributes to damage tolerance design of high temperature critical components.
