The objective of this paper is to investigate the possibilities of fibre-reinforced glass-ceramics based on cordierite (MAS, magnesium alumino-silicate) and barium-osumilith (BMAS, barium magnesium alumino-silicate) and to find optimum preparation conditions with respect to mechanical properties,...
Debond growth at the fiber/matrix interface caused by loading transverse to the fiber axis is analysed by the boundary-element method with the possibility of taking into account contact between fiber and matrix. Experimentally observed debonds that are typically much larger in the axial direction...
