Summary

An instrumented microindentation push-down apparatus is described. The interpretation of the indentation load-displacement curves is detailed for fibers of a SiC/MLAS and SiC/SiC composites. The fibers are found to be in residual compression in both composites. The interfacial parameters calculated from these experiments are consistent with other experimental observations.
