Abstract : The increasing demand for engineering materials in high temperature applications has led to investigation of the use of ceramic materials in such applications. Silicon nitride has emerged as a ceramic material having outstanding corrosion resistance, thermal shock resistance, mechanical properties and chemical properties. Although the requirements for increasingly higher operating temperatures (2500 F) for gas turbines have created much of the interest in silicon nitride, there are other potential high temperature applications such as bearings and radomes for which silicon nitride is also under consideration. The purpose of this bibliography is to summarize the research and development accomplished to date on the fabrication and properties of silicon nitride, particularly as it applies to structural uses of the material. This bibliography is an attempt to present a comprehensive but not an exhaustive study of the literature in the field.
