Ceramic matrix composite

Part 5 of Composite Material Handbook published by the US Department of Defense deals with Ceramic Matrix Composites. This  handbook  documents  engineering  methodologies  for  the  development  of  standardized,  statistically-based  material  property  data  for  ceramic  matrix  composite  materials.

Also  provided  are data summaries for a number of relevant composite material systems for which available data meet  specific  MIL-HDBK-17  requirements  for  publication.  Additionally,  supporting  engineering  and manufacturing technologies and common practices related to composite materials are summarized.

MIL-HDBK-17  is  the  primary  and  authoritative  source  for  characterization  and  statistically-based  property  and  performance  data  of  current  and  emerging  advanced  ceramic  matrix  composites.  It  reflects  the  best  available  data  and  methodologies  for  characterization,  testing,  analysis  and  design, and includes data development and usage guidelines in support of design methodologies for components.

This  standardization  handbook  has  been  developed  and  is  being  maintained  as  a  joint  effort  of  the  Department of Defense and the Federal Aviation Administration.

The information contained in this handbook was obtained from materials producers, industry, reports on  Government  sponsored  research,  the  open  literature,  and  by  contact  with  research  laboratories  and those who participate in the MIL-HDBK-17 coordination activity.

All information and data contained in this handbook have been coordinated with industry and the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, NASA, and Federal Aviation Administration prior to publication.
