Abstract

A forced-flow thermal-gradient chemical vapor infiltration process has been developed to fabricate composites of thick-walled tubular geometry common to many components. Fibrous preforms of different fiber architectures (3-dimensionally braided and filament wound) have been investigated to accommodate components with different mechanical property requirements. This paper will discuss the fabrication of tubular, fiber-reinforced SiC matrix composites and their mechanical properties.
