Summary

Cordieritic glass-ceramic matrix composites were prepared using Nicalon Sic continuous-fiber reinforcement. Both 1-D and 2–0 laminates were investigated. Damage tolerant behavior was observed in several of the experimental compositions and was associated with fiber pullout and crack defection toughening mechanisms. The complex microstructure of the matrix phase is amenable to heat treatment. The fiber microstructure is apparently unaffected by heat treatment after hot pressing. The structure of the fiber/matrix interface is also complex and sensitive to both the matrix composition and to heat treatment after hot pressing.
