Ceramics have great potential in various fields due to their hardness, strength, heat and wear resistance, compatibility with the physiological environment, etc. However, one of the most important drawbacks of ceramic materials is their brittle nature characterized by low fracture toughness. The load applied to the brittle ceramic can result in the very fast catastrophic growth of micro-cracks, existing in virtually any material, and can consequently lead to the final unpredictable fracture. In order to avoid this, ceramic matrix composites have been developed. The individual properties of the constituent compositions are effectively utilized in composite design. The properties of composite materials depend on the composition of the components, the quantitative ratio and the bond strength between them. By combining the volumetric content of the components, it is possible, depending on the purpose, to obtain materials with the required values of strength, heat resistance, elastic modulus, etc. or to obtain composites with the necessary special properties, such as magnetic, electric, etc. This Special Issue provides an overview of the recent advances in ceramic matrix composites and what impact they have (or may have) on the development of various fields of high technology. Our goal is to give scientists the opportunity to publish experimental and theoretical results in the form of short communications, full papers, or reviews corresponding to this Special Issue.
The following topics may be covered, but are not limited to, the following:
- Powder synthesis, ceramic composites processing and shaping;
- Sintering: conventional, cold sintering, flash sintering, field-assisted sintering, pressure-assisted sintering;
- Use of secondary phases or multiple phases to achieve outstanding properties;
- Additive fabrication.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Composites Science is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
