Unformatted text preview: Composites in which Solution Asceramics are used as the matrix is related to the slope of the bond-force curve at shown in Equation 2.5–1, Young’s modulus material. Figure 2.5–1 shows that the bond-force curve for x0 .chemical vapor deposition (CVD) material A is steeper than that for material A process by which B (at the point for which F 0). Therefore, material A has a higher Young’s modulus. Since two modulus is a chemically reacted to of the material, we should expect the beam Young’s gases aremeasure of the inherent stiffness produce a thin fabricated from material A to be stiffer and therefore deﬂect on than an identical of fabricated coating of the reaction product, a solid, less the surface beam from material B. the workpiece. ....................................................................................................................................... close-packed direction A crystallographic direction in aAs discussed previously theatoms touch. is the derivative of the bond-energy crystal along which bond-force curve curve: close-packed plane A crystallographic plane in a 2 crystal on which each atom contacts six neighbors.
