Abstract
Currently used processing methods for fabricating C-SiC are inadequate for the production of thick sections (over 1 inch) composite structures. This proposal offers a novel approach based on the Chemical Vapor Reaction Process (CVR). A low-cost C-C composite of controlled porosity will be converted into C-SiC. Interfacial carbon coatings will be utilized to prevent fiber damage.
