  • Content Description: The thermal stability of two-continuous fiber ceramic composites (CFCC`s) has been assessed. A Nicalon/CaO-Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}-SiO{sub 2} (CAS) glass-ceramic composite has been subjected to unstressed, oxidation heat treatments between 375 and 1200{degrees}C, after which the material was tested in flexure at room temperature. The static fatigue behavior of a chemical vapor infiltrated (CVI) Nicalon/SiC ceramic matrix composite has been assessed in air, between 425 and 1150{degrees}C, both with and without protective seal coating. Severe property degradation was observed due to oxidation of the graphite fiber/matrix interlayer in both CFCC`s.
