The uniaxial and bend strengths of AVCO-SCS-6 SiC filaments were experimentally determined to be 3250 and 4320 M Pa, respectively, at room temperature. Using Weibull statistics, a relationship between the uniaxial and bend strength of the fibres was derived and was found to compare favourably with experimentally determined strength values. The elastic modulus of the filaments was also determined, using a gauge length extrapolation technique.
