Summary

Ultimate strength and work of fracture results are presented for a series of continuous ceramic fiber composites. It is seen that by combining both as-received and BN-coated SiC fibers within the same composite, an additional fracture mechanism, bulk delamination, becomes operative within these systems. This additional mechanism is shown to improve both the strength (37%) and work of fracture (82%), when compared to a composite containing BN-coated fibers only.
