摘要：Hexagonal BN nanoparticles (BNNPs) and boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) were determined to fabricate the composites of 75wt% SiO_2-10wt% Al_2O_3-5wt% BNNPs (S-A-BNNPs) and 75wt% SiO_2-10wt% Al_2O_3-5wt% BNNTs (S-A-BNNTs) via hot pressing. Comprehensive investigations on mechanical properties of the two composites were conducted, respectively. The two composites had high flexural strength and fracture toughness. The flexural strength of S-A-BNNPs and S-A-BNNTs composites are approximately 216.1% and 279.1% higher than that of the unreinforced SiO_2, and the fracture toughness increases from 0.58MPam~(1/2) to 1.23MPam~(1/2), and to 1.39MPam~(1/2), respectively. Based upon detailed examination on microstructures, the strengthening and toughening mechanism was discussed.
