Development of Polycarbosilane (PCS) Polymer and PCS-Derived SiC Fibers and Their Composites

Ceramics, in general, are high temperature materials that have low density, low coefficient thermal expansion, excellent mechanical properties (strength, hardness), high thermo-oxidative stability, and excellent chemical resistance. Therefore, these have

Preface

Advanced ceramics and composites containing ceramics either in the form of matrix or reinforcement (e.g., monolithic ceramics, CMCs, MMCs, PMCs, hybrid composites, porous ceramics, etc.) have recently emerged as high-performance functional and structural materials. They find applications in strategic areas such as defense, aerospace, security, and energy. The editors believe that this book is comprehensive and unique with a wide range of coverage on relevant and emerging topics. Excellent reviews on various topics have been contributed by leading researchers from India and abroad. The primary motivation for compiling this book is to bring out a coherent portrayal of the wide span of up-to-date status of advanced materials from leading research groups working in the sectors of defense, security, aerospace, and sustainable and nuclear energy. The topics have been judiciously se
