Mechanical behaviour of an alumina fibre reinforced silicon carbide matrix composite at high temperature
In this study, the high temperature mechanical response of a 2D Al(2)O(3)(f)/SiC composite is investigated by uniaxial tensile, creep and fatigue tests under vacuum. During the tests, unloading-reloading cycles are introduced in order to study the evolution of damage with accumulated strain. The results show that creep damage is governed by interfacial debonding, whereas in the cyclic tests either fatigue damage only or combined creep-fatigue damage occurs.
