This concise, archival reference examines the results of the latest research and development programs on continuous fiber ceramic composites (CFCCs). It examines specific issues, such as thermal stresses, stress gradients, measurement capabilities, gripping methods, environmental effects, statistical considerations, and limited material quantities.
22 peer-reviewed papers are divided into 4 major categories:
Room-Temperature Test Results/Methods
Test Results/Methods Related to Design Implications
Environmental Effects and Characterization
Damage Accumulation and Material Development
Please note: This volume serves as an excellent companion to STP 1309/Thermal and Mechanical Test Methods and Behavior of Continuous-Fiber Ceramic Composites.
This publication will be of value to
Gas Turbine Designers
Power Systems Engineers
Mechanical and Design Engineers
Mechanical, Thermal and Environmental Testing and Performance of Ceramic Composites and Components
