Ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) are a class of composite materials in which filler are incorporated within a ceramic matrix. As a result of filler addition to ceramic matrix, specific properties can be altered. There are various ways to manufacture ceramics and CMCs, mainly depending upon the filler material and the final application. One such property is a reduction in crack propagation. Although their constituents are brittle, CMCs have found their applications in the vast majority of the area, including space, refractories, energy storage, and automotive. This chapter considers classification and manufacturing CMCs. This chapter summarises state of the art for CMCs and their manufacturing techniques and lays the foundation for their micromachining.
