Summary

Ceramic Matrix Composites are being considered for use as radiant burners and in other high temperature applications. To evaluate the feasibility of CMC's for advanced radiant burner systems, 1-D samples of single tows of ceramic fiber bundles, infiltrated with SiC or Si3N4, have been subjected to a representative radiant burner combustion environment. The evaluation program includes test comparisons of CMC sample strength both before and after prolonged cyclic thermal stress. This report focuses on the test methods and preliminary tensile test results after combustion environment exposure.
