Abstract

This article focuses on the production methods, properties, and applications of two main types of commercially available continuous-length ceramic fibers, namely, oxide fibers based on the alumina-silica system and on alpha-alumina, and nonoxide fibers based primarily on beta-phase silicon carbide. It provides a discussion on factors that are considered in understanding thermostructural capability of ceramic fiber for high-temperature ceramic-matrix composites (CMC) applications. The article tabulates other commercial oxide and nonoxide fiber types for CMC reinforcement.
