Three generations of small diameter ceramic fibres based on polycrystalline silicon carbide have been developed over a period of thirty years. This has been possible due to studies into the relationships between the microstructures and properties of the fibres. A variety of techniques have been employed by research teams on three continents. The fibres are made by the conversion of polymer precursors to ceramic fibres and all three generations are presently produced commercially. The nature of… 
Mechanical behaviour of polymer derived ceramics – a review
ABSTRACT Since the last five decades, polymer-derived ceramics (PDCs) are in use and envisaged for a variety of applications. The transition of a precursor to an inorganic ceramic by pyrolysis and

Highly flexible and strong SiC fibre mats prepared by electrospinning and hot-drawing
ABSTRACT Silicon carbide (SiC) fibres are widely used as promising reinforcement in ceramic matrix composites due to their excellent mechanical and thermal properties. In this work, sub-micrometer
Effects of heat treatment on the microstructures and properties of KD-I SiC fibres
Abstract For the sake of exploring the relationship between the microstructures and properties of silicon carbide (SiC)-based fibres, KD-I SiC fibres were heat treated at increased temperatures from
Production of b-Silicon Carbide Nanofibers using the Forcespinning ® Method
Silicon carbide (SiC) nanofibers were produced on a large scale using the Forcespinning® method. Non-oxide ceramics such as SiC are known for their low density, oxidation resistance, thermal
Polymer‐Derived Ceramics: 40 Years of Research and Innovation in Advanced Ceramics
Preceramic polymers were proposed over 30 years ago as precursors for the fabrication of mainly Si-based advanced ceramics, generally denoted as polymer-derived ceramics (PDCs). The polymer to
High temperature resistant SiC fibres derived from novel boron containing polycarbosilane
Abstract Continuous SiC fibres have been widely studied and employed as important reinforcement of ceramic matrix composites. The heat resistant property of SiC fibres can be improved by introducing
