An investigation was made to determine the properties of a boron carbide-iron ceramal. These properties were compared with the properties of hot-pressed baron carbide. The properties evaluated were room- and elevated-temperature modulus of rupture, resistance to fracture by thermal shock, density, and oxidation characteristics. A study was also made of the microstructure of ceremal.
