The tensile properties of various carbon matrix composites, reinforced with C and SiC fibers, have been evaluated. The objective is to assess mechanics procedures for characterizing the influence of holes and notches. Interpretation has been attempted using large-scale bridging mechanics, with linear elastic fracture mechanics as one limit and notch insensitivity as the other. Important differences between the materials, associated primarily with the fiber/matrix interfaces and the in-plane shear strength, have been identified and attempts made to rationalize these differences.
