    Carbon-Carbon Composite Application Areas and Limitations
    Author(s): Fasil Kebede*

    Carbon-Carbon composites are a new class of engineering materials that are ceramic in nature but exhibit brittle to pseudo plastic behavior. Carbon fiber reinforcements when embedded in carbonaceous matrix material results in Carbon-Carbon composites. Carbon-carbon composites due to their far superior thermo-mechanical properties are used in a number of demanding applications. However, the material is still being used in specific high-tech applications with few exceptions in general industrial applications. The material is extremely expensive and the major challenge is to reduce cost by modifying the various fabrication techniques available. This article review represents a review of some major developments in Carbon-Carbon composites including properties, major applications, and future potential. Improving structural components and elements by various tec.. View More»
