Advanced Carbon–Carbon Composites: Processing Properties and Applications

Abstract

Carbon–carbon composites (C/Cs) are of significant technological importance in various advanced applications, owing to their unique mechanical and thermal properties. C/Cs are composed of carbon fiber-reinforced carbon matrix. This chapter summarizes various aspects of C/Cs in terms of matrix and reinforcement precursors, fabrication of C/Cs and effects of various processing parameters on their mechanical and thermal properties, and their applications. Effects of processing parameters and architecture of carbon fiber reinforcement have been highlighted.
