  1. 1. Silicon Carbide Reinforced Alumina and Mullite Ceramics

    Author : Stefan Gustafsson; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Ceramic Nanocomposites; Creep; SEM; SiC; Grain Boundaries; Microanalysis; Mullite; Pressureless Sintering; TEM; Alumina;

    Abstract : The aim of this work was to develop homogeneous ceramic nanocomposite materials with good thermal and structural stability as well as good mechanical properties. The development of microstructure was related to the material properties. READ MORE

  2. 2. Continuous Fibre Reinforced Oxide/Oxide Composites

    Author : Magnus Holmquist; [2003]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; polycrystalline oxide fibre; zirconia; single crystal oxide fibre; hot isostatic pressing; hot pressing; alumina; mullite; sapphire; tape casting; interface; VibroIntrusion; interphase; continuous fibre reinforced ceramic composite; mechanical properties; oxide fibre; ceramic matrix composite;

    Abstract : The appealing properties of ceramics include retention of strength and hardness at high temperatures, chemical inertness and low density. However, monolithic ceramics fail in a brittle, unpredictable manner making them unsuitable for many applications where reliability is a key requirement. READ MORE

  3. 3. Manufacture of long-fibre reinforced ceramics by reaction bonding

    Author : Jesper Brandt; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; weaves; slurry infiltration; fibre; aluminium oxide; reaction bonding; ceramic matrix composite; mullite; silicon nitride; alumina; CMC;

    Abstract : For several decades ceramic matrix composites has been of interest to be used as hot parts in certain high-performance gas turbine aero engines. In general, ceramic materials resist higher temperatures than superalloys. READ MORE

  4. 4. Properties of Ugandan minerals and fireclay refractories

    University dissertation from Stockholm, : KTH

    Author : John Baptist Kirabira; Stefan Jonsson; Thomas Johansson; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Materials science; kaolin; clay; Ugandan minerals; fireclay; refractory; powders characterization; beneficiation; ceramics; mullite; Materialvetenskap; TECHNOLOGY Materials science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : Development of products which can be produced from a country’s natural resources is very important as far as the industrialization of a nation and saving foreign exchange is concerned. Presently, industries in Uganda and the other states in the Lake Victoria region import all refractory-related-consumables, as the demand cannot be met locally. READ MORE

  5. 5. Innovative process solutions towards recycling of salt cake from secondary aluminum smelting

    University dissertation from Stockholm, : KTH

    Author : Peng Li; Lidong Teng; Sankaran Subramanian; []
