The toughness increment occurring in Si 3 N 4 -based composites due to the addition of MoSi 2 particles was compared to the predictions of theoretical models based on the combination of residual stresses and crack deflection toughening mechanisms. A direct application of theoretical models led to...
Conical carbon fibers (CCFs) with carbon nanotubes (CNTs) as their cores were grown on graphite substrates with a chemical vapor deposition method. The CNT-cored CCFs were about several tens of micrometers in length. In the interaction with a probe system, the CNT core filaments demonstrated good...
