The patent relates to a method for fabricating silicon carbide articles which comprises hot pressing a homogeneous mixture of carbonaceous particles and silicon carbide powder. The presence of the carbon limits grain growth so that a silicon carbide product having greatly improved physical properties is obtained. The method is suitable for fabricating structural elements, e.g., structural components in the hot sections of air breathing propulsion systems.
