Abstract:

In order to provide some of the basic data necessary for the effective utilization of ceramics and cermets in various high-temperature applications, a specimen bank of such materials, mainly commercially fabricated, was established for the measurement of physical properties and constants. This Monograph describes 1 The materials and some of their fabrication data 2 bulk densities 3 theoretical densities and 4 the dynamic room-temperature elastic constants. Data are given for 46 sets of specimens, representing 20 different materials these include oxides, carbides, borides, cermets, and an intermetallic compound. A statistical evaluation was used for analyzing the data.
