Summary

Unidirectional SiC fiber-reinforced glass-ceramic composites were fabricated by slurry filament winding. The cordierite/SiC hot pressed specimens were examined with respect to atmosphere effects and thermal shock behavior. Composite bars were crystallized in air and in argon and subsequently exposed in air for 8 h at 1000°C. Flexure tests were performed on the atmosphere specimens and the resulting fracture surface analyzed for effect on the fiber matrix interface. The same composite system was thermal shocked at 400°C and the strength after tested in tension. Again the fracture surface was analyzed for changes in the fiber/matrix interface.
