Foreign object damage (FOD) behavior of an N720/alumina oxide/oxide ceramic matrix composite (CMC) was characterized at ambient temperature by using spherical projectiles impacted at velocities ranging from 100 to 350 m/s. The CMC targets were subject to ballistic impact at a normal incidence angle while being loaded under different levels of tensile loading in order to simulate conditions of rotating aeroengine airfoils. The impact damage of frontal and back surfaces was assessed with respect to impact velocity and load factor. Subsequent postimpact residual strength was also estimated to determine quantitatively the severity of impact damage. Impact force was predicted based on the principles of energy conservation.
