Abstract

The addition of SiC nanoparticles and Si3N4 whiskers had significant effects on the microstructure and mechanical properties of Si3N4. Excellent flexural strength, fracture toughness, and high-temperature strength were obtained by adjusting the relative concentration of SiC nanoparticle and Si3N4 whiskers. After oxidation, the flexural strength of the nanocomposite increased by about 40% due to the crystallization of both the oxidation product and the grain boundary by the SiC nanoparticles.
