Abstract

A brief review of the high frequency fatigue behavior of continuous fiber ceramic composites (CFCCs) is presented. The fatigue of unidirectional and woven composites tested at frequencies of up to 350 Hz is described. It is shown that the reinforcing architecture and the nature of the fiber/matrix interface play key roles in determining the high frequency fatigue behavior of ceramic composites. Models were developed that correlated the interfacial shear stress at the fiber/matrix interface with the amount of heat generated by a specimen due to frictional sliding of debonded fibers. Damage mechanisms in unidirectional and woven composites subjected to high frequency fatigue are also presented and discussed.
