Abstract:

Earlier studies by the Materials Advisory Board, in 1961 and 1963, emphasized that a detailed examination of ceramic processing was a necessary step toward obtaining reliable high-integrity ceramic materials with superior properties. In 1964, at the instigation of the Navy Bureau of Weapons, the Department of Defense requested the Materials Advisory Board to initiate such an examination. During the course of this study, the committee making the study provided guidance and stimulation for a relevant research-and-development effort among the military services. This report discusses and summarizes the conclusions and recommendations of the study committee and emphasizes the work yet to be done to produce ceramic materials with the characteristics required for use in structures and, to a degree, electrical and electronic applications.
