Summary

Thermal shock behavior of an SiC fiber-(Nicabn®) reinforced borosilicate glass composite has been investigated experimentally. The elastic modulus and flexure strength of the composite after the thermal shock were obtained as a function of thermal shock temperature. The result showed that the multiple cracking of glass matrix and decrease of interfacial shear strength were recognized above the thermal shock temperature of 600 K. When the thermal shock temperature was above 600 K, the decreases of elastic modulus and flexure strength were also observed. Those phenomena were discussed with the damage mechanisms of the composite.
