Abstract : Residual stress is measured in a carbon-carbon composite. The curvature of a slice of asymmetric cross section indicates the amount of stress caused by thermal expansion anisotropy. Measured high-temperature creep rates are used to estimate stress relaxation times at high temperatures. (MM)
