A study of the mechanical characteristics of a unidirectional fiber–reinforced calcium aluminosilicate matrix composite has been conducted. The properties have been related to the individual properties of the matrix, the fibers, and the interfaces, as well as the residual stress, using available models of matrix cracking and fiber fracture. Comparisons have been made with lithium aluminosilicate matrix composites. Predictions of initial matrix cracking and of ultimate strength using the models are found to correlate well with the measured values. However, deficiencies have been noted in the ability of the models to predict the evolution of matrix cracks, plus associated changes in the modulus.
