Abstract

Cylindrical SiC-based composites composed of inner Si/SiC reticulated foam and outer Si-infiltrated SiC fiber-reinforced SiC (SiCf/Si/SiC) skin were fabricated by the electrophoretic deposition of matrix particles into SiC fabrics followed by Si-infiltration for high temperature heat exchanger applications. An electrophoretic deposition combined with ultrasonication was used to fabricate a tubular SiCf/SiC skin layer, which infiltrated SiC and carbon particles effectively into the voids of SiC fabrics by minimizing the surface sealing effect. After liquid silicon infiltration at 1550 °C, the composite revealed a density of 2.75 g/cm3 along with a well-joined interface between the inside Si/SiC foam and outer SiCf/Si/SiC skin layer. The results also showed that the skin layer, which was composed of 81.4 wt% β-SiC, 17.2 wt% Si and 1.4 wt% SiO2, exhibited a gastight dense microstructure and the flexural strength of 192.3 MPa.
