Abstract Fibreboards made of coir fibres were converted to carbon templates by controlled thermal processing and were further infiltrated and reacted with liquid Si at 1550 °C under vacuum to produce biomorphic SiC ceramics. Microstructural analysis including quantitative characterisation of microstructure was undertaken, employing optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction techniques. Mechanical properties were investigated at room temperature. Testing included… CONTINUE READING
