The paper presents a joint experimental study of synergic effects on C/SiC composites. Outgassing characteristics are investigated in experimental tests. Correlation between these phenomena and variation in thermal properties of C/SiC composites is studied by means of the inverse method and scanning electron microscope (SEM) analysis.
