– Nano-Si3N4/nano-BN composite has higher values of Vicker and Knoop hardness, as compared with

the micro-sized Si3N4/BN composite.
– Micro hardness (H

doped with BN and fabricated through spark plasma
sintering is as high as 13.9 GPa
– Micro hardness (H

) of pressure less sintered silicon carbide fabricated through tape casting is
26.13Gpa, higher than liquid phase sintered silicon carbide (LPSSiC) fabricated through hot
pressing.
– Micro hardness (H

and
fabricated through hot pressing is 17.44 GPa higher than other selected silicon nitride materials.

material.
– Micro hardness (H
v
) of SiC doped with B and graphite and fabricated through tape casting is 13.05
GPa.
– Vickers hardness value of all selected materials is higher than the Knoop hardness value except for
Si
3
N

doped with TiN.
– Fracture toughness of doped with TiN is 5.5 MPa higher than the monolithic Si
3
N
4
because sintering
additives and residual Intergranular grain boundary in liquid phase sintering provides toughening
mechanisms after sintering.
– Fracture toughness of SiC is 2.84 MPa lower than the other ceramic materials. The microstructure in
sintered silicon carbide (SSiC), results in predominantly trans-granular fracture, which results in a
very low fracture toughness, reducing its usage as an engineering material.
– Lower coefficient of friction was observed for Si

– Coefficient of friction of Sialon / silicon nitride decreases from 0.315 to 0.118 with increase
in temperature from 200-500°C under normal load of 20 N.
– Coefficient of friction of SiC increases with the increase in temperature.
– Wear resistance of Nano-sized Si

/ BN composite is higher, as compared to that of
Micro-sized Si

N4 composite. The improvement in the wear resistance is attributed to lower
values of mechanical severity factor. Mechanical severity factor varies with the hardness and
fracture toughness.
– Wear coefficeient of microsized Si

– Wear coefficeient of Sialon increases with the increase in temperature.
– Wear coefficeient of SiC increases with the increase in temperature
