Summary

Two-layer and three-layer laminates were fabricated from ceramic fiber composites and 9606 pyroceram materials. Shear and four-point flexure testing were conducted to determine both bonding and fracture strengths. Results indicate that the failure resistance is enhanced by the presence of the composite layer in the laminate, when compared to the unlaminated pyroceram material.
