Ceramic-matrix composites (CMCs) are used as high-temperature structural materials, because they have outstanding advantages over more conventional materials such as: high specific strength, high specific modulus, high temperature resistance and good thermal stability, which play a crucial role in the development of a high thrust weight ratio aero engine. The critical nature of the application of these advanced materials makes it necessary to have a complete understanding of their characterization. Designers need information not only pertaining to the strength of these materials, but also their fatigue and damage characteristics. This book focuses explicitly on the durability of CMCs. The book will be extremely valuable for materials scientists and engineers who are dealing with the simulation of durability response and fatigue of ceramic matrix composites, with particular focus on aerospace propulsion systems.
