The fatigue behavior of Hyper-Therm High Temperature Composites (HTC) Sylramic-iBN/BN/CVI SiC material was investigated while being subjected to a unique high temperature environment. The specimens used in this research were subjected to a high temperature combustion environment intended to simulate the conditions this material would see in turbine engine applications. Results show that the effects of the combustion environment on the materials fatigue behavior are significant with increasing temperature.
