Summary

The fiber diameter variation from fiber-to-fiber within a tow and along single filament lengths was assessed by image analysis and SEM for four SiC-based fibers: Hi-Nicalon and Hi-Nicalon Type S (Nippon Carbon Co.), Tyranno SA (Ube Industries) and Dow Sylramic (Dow Corning). A modified 3-parameter Weibull analysis was used to examine the fiber strengths and strength distributions.
