Summary

Conventional compression test fixtures used for monolithic ceramics and polymer matrix composites were applied to compression tests of continuous SiC-fiber reinforced ceramic matrix composites (CFR-CMC). Effects of fixture structure, tab and specimen configurations were investigated. In compression tests using gripping supports, compression failure occurred in a gage section, and the direct compression, without any gripping parts and reduced gage parts, lead to edge failure. The failure mechanisms were due to the fixture and specimen configurations. Modified IITRI fixture and controlled face supported fixture using a specimen with a reduced gage section are recommended for compression test for CFR-CMC.
