Presents recent techniques for the manufacture, as well as research on the behaviour, of high-performance flexible ceramic fibres used to develop structural materials for applications up to very high temperatures, allowing the optimization of ceramic composites in jet engine components, heat exchangers, refractory insulators and other components. The text explores complex ceramic microstructures down to the atomic level.
