Summary

The mechanical behavior of ceramic fiber reinforced ceramic matrix composite tubular specimens fabricated from filament winding and a sol-gel infiltration process were characterized under biaxial stress state (tension and/or torsion) at room and elevated temperatures. Two types of specimens with different material and structure were tested. Test procedures are briefly described and typical results are presented.
