Ceramic Fibers and Fibrous Composite Materials has a two-fold purpose. First, it supplements and updates the information on ceramic and graphite fibers and whiskers which was presented in Volume 1 of the Refractory Materials Monograph Series. Secondly it reviews the progress being made in fiber-reinforced materials which utilize these newer fibers as reinforcements. For this latter purpose, the properties of composites, the problems of fiber handling and alignment, the problems of fiber-matrix interaction, and the effects of fabrication processes on composite properties are discussed. In addition, a chapter on fiber and whisker testing is included.
