Summary

This paper presents results from a series of mechanical characterization in an effort to identify some of the fundamental, mechanistic damage in fiber reinforced glass-ceramic matrix composites. An investigation of progressive damage modes in [0/90]4, (a 16 symmetric, cross-ply laminate) Nicalon/CAS-li laminates under cyclic tension has been conducted. Based on the results analysis, a possible cumulative damage model is proposed.
