Summary

An interactive analytical model has been developed for modeling the behavior of Continuous Fiber reinforced Ceramic matrix Composites (CFCC). The model integrates a large number of micromechanics solutions to problems associated with the microstructure of CFCC materials into an easy-to-use tool for predicting all of the thermostructural properties, and stress states for these materials in unidirectional and laminated forms. Particulate reinforcement and voids can be included in the material description. Inherent in the code is a model for handling the accumulation of micro cracks within the matrix as loading is increased, resulting in a non-linear stress-strain response of the composite. Sufficient material characteristics are retained within the model to enable sensitivity studies to identify principal causes for material behavior.
