Summary

The oxidation behavior of carbon is evaluated in the temperature range of 700 to 1200°C. Analytical solutions for the recession of carbon in a non-reactive matrix are calculated as a function of temperature, pressure, fiber/interface thickness, and chemical reaction sequence. Experimental observations on two microcomposites systems are correlated to the analytical models.
