SiC fiber-reinforced ZrTi04 composites with different thermomechanical properties were fabricated using the same matrix composition. The effect of varying processing conditions on the resultant interfacial region and its associated slide and debond resistance, matrix fracture toughness, and fiber strength were studied. Strength and fracture toughness testing were used to measure the changes in the mechanical properties of the various composites. SEM and TEM were used to analyze the changes in the interfacial region, and to correlate the changes in processing with the measured differences in the mechanical properties of the different composites.
