Ceramic matrix composite (CMC) integrated with various advanced properties is a promising material in many space projects. In those applications, CMC will be subjected to various extreme environments with temperature range of − 170 to 2000 ∘C as well as space particles. A series of methods have been developed to simulate different stage of severe environment, i.e., launching stage, staying stage and re-entry stage. C/SiC related materials have been investigated by these simulation methods. A lot of useful information obtained by the series of simulation methods have been remarkably enhanced our understanding on the behavior of CMC used for RLV hot structures.
