ASTM C 1468 (C-1468) determines the transthickness tensile strength under monotonic uniaxial forcing of continuous fiber-reinforced ceramics at ambient temperature. Transthickness tensile strength as used in this test method refers to the tensile strength obtained under monotonic uniaxial forcing where monotonic refers to a continuous nonstop test rate with no reversals from test initiation to final fracture. This test method may be used for quality assurance, characterization, and research and development. TestResources provides machines, grips, equipment, and fixtures for testing in accordance with ASTM C1468.

The brittle nature of the matrices of CFCCs requires accurate alignment. Bending moments can produce stresses leading to premature crack initiation and fracture of the test specimen.
