Summary

Strength and tensile behavior, at room and high temperatures, as well as structures of 3D-carbon fiber/SiC composites fabricated by slurry-pulse CVI combined process are characterized. Carbon fiber preforms constructed with 4-step braid, 4-step/axial braid, 2-step braid and orthogonal weave are used as reinforcements of the composites. The composites are fabricated by the process consisting of slurry and dissolved organosilicon-polymer infiltrations, followed by the pulse CVI application. Tensile behaviors at room temperature and 1573 K are investigated and discussed in relation to structures and reinforcements of the composites.
