Summary

The fatigue behaviour of a Nicalon/CAS continuous fibre reinforced glass ceramic matrix composite was studied at room temperature and at a temperature of 800°C in air. The relative contributions of cyclic and static loading to damage development are discussed. In addition the flexural strength at test temperatures of both 800 and 1000°C was studied and is dependent on the loading rate employed. These results are discussed with reference to current theories of interfacial reactions at elevated temperatures.
