Material Properties of a Sintered α-SiC



R G. Munro


A self-consistent, single-valued representation of the major physical, mechanical, and thermal properties of a sintered Α-SiC is presented. This comprehensive set of properties is achieved by focusing on a narrowly defined material specification in which boron and carbon are used as sintering aids to produce a dense ceramic [>/= 98% of the theoretical maximum density] with a grain size of [6 2] m. Such a representation is highly desirable in applications of concurrent engineering practices and for the increasing use of electronic processing of product specifications.
