University of Limoges developing composite ceramics for aeronautics applications

By Martin Grolms / August 4, 2011

ZrC-SiC materials from poly(methylvinylsilane) Credit Pizon, et al.; Advanced Engineering Materials. New advanced materials are often drivers of technologies, especially for aeronautics applications. Many materials have been developed to resist severe working conditions, which usually couple high-temperature and mechanical-stress corrosion resistance. For these applications, non-oxide ceramics are promising materials, particularly transition metal carbides, such as zirconium…
