ASTM C1468 covers the determination of transthickness tensile strength (STU) under monotonic uniaxial forcing of continuous fiber-reinforced ceramics (CFCC) at ambient temperature. ASTM C1468 applies to advanced ceramic matrix composites with continuous fiber reinforcement; unidirectional (1-D), bidirectional (2-D), woven and tridirectional (3-D). This test method may also be used with glass matrix composites that have 1-D, 2-D, and 3-D continuous fiber reinforcement.
In general, round or square test specimens are tensile tested in the direction normal to the thickness by bonding appropriate hardware to the samples and performing the test.
Properties learned through testing may be used for material development, material comparison, quality assurance, characterization, and design data generation.
