Summary

Tensile and tensile creep tests were conducted with a Nicalon©/aluminosilicate (Si-C-O/1723) glass composite. Tensile tests were conducted at room temperature, and the creep tests were conducted at 600°, 700°, and 750°C. Room temperature tensile test failure features exhibited a tortuous crack path and extensive fiber pull-out. The failure features in creep were characterized by flat fracture and little fiber pullout. The environment appeared to play a significant role in creep failure of this composite system.
