Summary

Unidirectional Sic monofilament-reinforced borosilicate glass composites were fabricated. Matrix materials were evaluated on the basis of optical clarity, thermo-elastic compatibility, and process ability. Preliminary observations of failure modes of these composites are discussed. Severe matrix cracking was found to be the predominant failure mode.
