Cylinders and bars of bulk YBa2CuO7-Y2BaCuO5 textured ceramic composites (123-211) have been prepared through different directional solidification processes. Green ceramic preforms for the directional solidification process have been obtained by sintering the starting powders (123) and (211) in ceramic moulds at small pressures and by using a Cold Isostatic Pressing technique (CIP). The bars were melted and solidified in a vertical gradient furnace by the Bridgman technique at different rates up...
