Summary

Fabrication of fiber-reinforced composites by a patented chemical vapor infiltration process has continued. Modifications to the process used for infiltration of unidirectional preforms resulted in more uniform matrix deposition throughout the preform and improved mechanical properties of the composites. Infiltration of improved cloth preforms containing more uniform porosity resulted in composites with fewer and smaller voids.
