  • Lifetime studies in four-point flexure were performed on a Hi-Nicalon TM fiber-reinforced SiC matrix composite over a temperature range of 700 degrees to 1150 degrees C in air. The composite consisted of ~40 vol. % Hi-Nicalon TM fiber (8-harness weave) with a 0.5 Mu-m BN fiber coating and a melt-infiltration SiC matrix wand was tested with as-machined surfaces. Lifetime results indicated that the composite exhibited a stress-dependent lifetime at stress levels above an apparent fatigue limit, similar to the trend observed in CG-Nicalon TM fiber reinforced CVI SiC matrix composites. At less than or equal to 950 degrees C, themore » lifetimes of Hi-Nicalon/MI SiC composites decreased with increasing applied stress level and test temperature. However, the lifetimes were extended as test temperature increased from 950 degees to 1150 degrees C as a result of surface crack sealing due to glass formation by the oxidation of Mi SiC matrix. The lifetime governing processes were, in general, attributed to the progressive oxidation of BN fiber coating and formation of glassy phase, which formed a strong bond between fiber and matrix, resulting in embrittlement of the composite with time.« less
  • The fracture of SiC/Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}-AlPO{sub 4} cementitious matrix, 2D woven fabric, laminated composites was investigated from room temperature to 1,200C. The differences in the mechanical properties were studied in terms of (1) the carbon coating on the fibers and (2) temperature. A significant result of this thesis was the major effect of the matrix bond phase transition of the AlPO{sub 4} on the fracture resistance. A distinct transition of the fracture from toughened-to-embrittled was observed at 600C for the three composites. For temperatures below 600C, the carbon coating promotes a weak interfacial bonding at the fiber/matrix interface. Consequently, fibermore » debonding and fiber pull-out contribute to the rising R curves of the composites. At temperatures above 600C, the thermally induced clamping stresses on the fibers are large, while the effect of the carbon coating is insignificant. As a result, the interfacial bonding at the fiber/matrix interface is very strong. The lack of the fiber debonding and fiber pull-out result in a flat R curves for these composites.« less
