Abstract

SiC whisker/calcium phosphate and C fiber/calcium phosphate composites were fabricated by hot-pressing at 1185 °C and 7.6 MPa in vacuum. The microstructural characteristics, especially interfaces, of these composites were studied using transmission electron microscopy. The mechanical properties of these composites were measured by four-point bending tests. It was found that the mechanical properties of these calcium phosphate-based composites were strongly dependent on their microstructural characteristics.
