Ultra High Temperature Mechanical Testing

Based on the edited proceedings of a meeting held in Petten, The Netherlands in September 1992, this book deals with test methods and procedures for ultra high temperature mechanical testing - typically, but not exclusively, above 1500°C. The principal subject materials covered are ceramic matrix composites including C/C, but intermetallics, refractory metals and monolithic ceramics are also included.
