Abstract
THE PROPOSED PHASE I RESEARCH PROJECT WILL EXAMINE ALTERNATIVE METHODS FOR SYNTHESIS OF Y(2)O(3) AND Y(2)O(3)-BASED COATINGS ON CERAMIC FIBERS AND METALLIC PARTICLES FOR USE IN CERAMIC AND INTERMETALLIC BRITTLE MATRIX COMPOSITES. SYNTHESIS METHODS AND HEAT TREATMENT CONDITIONS WILL BE VARIED TO PRODUCE THERMOCHEMICALLY COMPATIBLE COATINGS HAVING A RANGE OF INTERFACIAL SHEAR STRENGTHS FROM NEAR-ZERO TO NEAR THEORETICAL. PROTOTYPE COATED FIBERS AND PARTICULATES WILL BE EVALUATED AS CONSTITUENT PHASES IN BOTH CERAMIC AND INTERMETALLIC MATRIX COMPOSITE SYSTEMS.
