Summary

Single fiber tensile tests were performed on Borosilicate glass-SiC-fiber composites to measure the interfacial shear strength. Samples were prepared by sandwiching SiC fibers, 140 μm in diameter between borosilicate glass plates fused together by heating to 750°C under a dead weight corresponding to about 1.5 psi. The interface was varied by using fibers with different surface layers. The samples were tested in tension and the load-displacement curves recorded. The interface shear stress has been calculated as the maximum force divided by the initial contact area. For this system, interface shear stresses in the range 6–14 MPa have been measured.
