Development, Analysis and Testing of Concepts for Improved FOD Impact Resistance of Ceramic Matrix Composites
A combined fabrication and experimentation program, coupled with mathematical simulation of impact events to enable improved FOD resistant HiPerCompTM designs, is proposed here. The CMC's associated with this program are the General Electric Company HiPerComp SiC/SiC material system. Extensive non-destructive characterization will be performed on the CMC impact specimens, prior to and following impact testing. Impact tests will be performed on baseline and modified matrix CMCs, at room temperature and at elevated temperature. Residual property measurements of post-tested CMC impact specimens will also be performed.
