This study investigated the monotonic tension and compression and the tension-tension and tension-compression fatigue loading of Blackglas/Nextel 312 woven CMC at room temperature and at 760 degrees centigrade. Young's Modulus and strain variation were evaluated. S-N curves were obtained for room and elevated temperatures. The ultimate tensile stress was lower at the elevated temperature and it was higher in the compression test. Failure-strain was higher at the elevated temperature in both tension and compression tests. There was no significant change in Young's Modulus at the elevated temperature. Also, there was no difference in the number of cycles to failure at the elevated temperature between tension-tension and tension-compression fatigue loading. Microscopic examination was performed to characterize damage mechanisms.
