Abstract:

This interim report describes the results of research conducted under Grant No. AFOSR-87-0114, which deals primarily with the processing and characterization of complex ceramic matrix composite systems. Particular emphasis was placed on developing processing schemes for whisker-reinforced ceramic matrix composites. Additional studies are being conducted on boron carbide-aluminum ceramicmetal composites. Further, theoretical studies have been made to provide the foundation for developing a more fundamental understanding of colloidal systems.
