Reaction bonded silicon carbide (RBSiC) has a wide variety of industrial applications and a manufacturing process based on Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) has been demonstrated in previous research at the University of Texas. That study was directed toward semiconductor manufacturing applications and was based on prior indirect SLS methods. Several key research questions were addressed for three main manufacturing phases: preform SLS, binder burnout and reactive infiltration. The current… Expand

Effect of particle dispersion on microstructure and strength of reaction-bonded silicon carbide
Abstract In a binary system of silicon carbide (SiC) and carbon black (C), various green bodies having different porosity and pore size distribution were prepared from suspensions with differentExpand
An original way to investigate the siliconizing of carbon materials
Abstract The reaction of liquid silicon with glassy carbon and polycrystalline graphite was investigated according to two siliconizing processes. In the first process, the reactants are progressivelyExpand
Infiltration of Liquid Metals in Porous Compacts: Modeling of Permeabilities During Reactive Melt Infiltration
Reactive infiltration is a fast and cost-effective technique for manufacturing ceramic-matrix composites (CMCs). CMCs are used in elevated temperature applications like rocket engine casings, jetExpand
Microstructure–mechanical properties correlation in siliconized silicon carbide ceramics
The microstructure and high temperature mechanical properties of siliconized silicon carbide ceramics (reaction bonded, reaction formed, and biomorphic SiC) have been investigated. TheExpand
Dimensionally Accurate Mold Inserts and Metal Components by Direct Metal Laser Sintering
One of the main deficiencies in today‘s rapid tooling techniques is the capability of producing only near net-shape parts. Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) is a technique that enables theExpand
The Formation and Crystal Structure of Silicon Carbide
The presence of cubic β-SiC has been identified by X-ray photographs when graphite and silicon are heated together at temperatures as low as 1 150°C, and when vitreous silica is heated with graphiteExpand
Analysis of rapid manufacturing—using layer manufacturing processes for production
Abstract Rapid prototyping (RP) technologies that have emerged over the last 15 years are all based on the principle of creating three-dimensional geometries directly from computer aided design (CAD)Expand
Structuring of Multiphase Compacts in the SiC ― Carbon System. Part 1. Structuring in Green Blanks
A study is made of the effect of particle dimensions of the initial carbon and silicon carbide powders on the structure of compacts in the SiC ― carbon system. It is established that carbon can beExpand
Rapid tooling: selective laser sintering injection tooling
Abstract Increasingly, time to market has become the key differentiator for success in the consumer product marketplace. Metal injection mould tooling is often the most time-consuming costly part ofExpand
Silicon carbide: its nonabrasive electrical properties and applications
Silicon carbide (SiC) has been around for over a century. However, only in the past two to three decades has its semiconducting properties been sufficiently studied and applied. Its many advantages,Expand
