Book Description

Describing the theoretical aspects of chemistry and microstructure that affect mechanical properties, this work offers coverage of ceramic mechanical property measurement techniques for use in component design as well as lifetime and reliability predictions. It presents procedures from both room- and elevated-temperature applications.

Table of Contents

The reasons behind mechanical test procedures for ceramics or why we measure what we measure; environmental effects on crack growth in ceramics; crack-resistance behaviour in ceramics; fracture strength; creep testing of advanced ceramics; fatigue and slow crack growth; testing for tubular components; standardization of mechanical properties tests for advanced ceramics; testing for design, material and fabrication optimization.
