Title

Stiffness of Woven Ceramic Matrix Composites with Matrix Cracks

Abstract

An account is given of an ongoing study aimed at the analysis of plain weave ceramic matrix woven composites (CMC) with matrix cracks. The issues important for the analysis of such composites and for a development of an analytical model of thermography-based detection of cracks are detailed. Further, the effect of matrix cracking on the stiffness of plain weave ceramic matrix composites is illustrated using numerical examples.
