Abstract:Si3N4/SiC nanocomposites are well known and attractive for advanced ceramic applications due to excellent mechanical and thermal properties, which make them suitable for use in turbine engines, heat exchangers, and other sophisticated applications. However, without the presence of additives, the fabrication of Si3N4/SiC composites is difficult. The additives form a liquid phase during sintering and facilitate the densification of the composite. However, the additives present a drawback at high temperatures since they decrease the mechanical properties of the composites. Recently, Si3N4/SiC composites were fabricated via the polymer precursor route without any additives, using electric field assisted sintering (EFAS). In this study, fully densified Si3N4/SiC nanocomposites incorporating hexagonal-BN were successfully fabricated by hot pressing without any additives at 1700 °C for 2 h under vacuum at a pressure of 50 MPa (via the amorphous precursor route). Moreover, the incorporation of additives and h-BN is found to decrease the content of SiC. The phase transformation, densification, microstructure, and mechanical properties were discussed and presented.
