Abstract:

A study of certain factors influencing tensile, fatigue, and creep behavior in B-Al and BSiC-Ti composite materials was performed. The effects of controlled composite imperfections including filament spacing defects, aligned filament breakage, and improper fiber-matrix bond condition on tensile and fatigue behavior were investigated. Fatigue behavior of BSiC-Ti was studied for a variety of loading conditions. Modified author abstract
