Abstract:

High temperature chemical reactions can decisively affect the preparation and performance of glass and ceramic fibers and composites. Fiber tensile strength can be limited by critical defects resulting from process chemistry and processing of ceramic composites made difficult, if not impossible, by unwanted high temperature reactions. In some cases, however, advantage can be taken of high temperature reactions to form in situ composites. The foregoing points are discussed and illustrated with examples from the authors research and from the literature.
