Piezoresistivity effect of a silicon carbide-based ceramic fiber (Nicalon family) was evaluated when a single fiber was buried at the tensile plane in a plastic rectangular bar subjected to bending to apply a stable tensile strain. Electrical resistivity change during the bending was monitored by a digital high-resistance meter. From the fracture strain, Young's modulus, and the resistivity change, the piezoresistance coefficient is calculated to be 1.6 × 10 -11 m 2/N, which is in agreement with the reported value for silicon carbide single crystals and our own reported value for polycrystalline silicon carbide ceramics.
