Crack propagation in ceramic composites with layered granular structure
- 36 Downloads
Fracture experiments under conditions of subcritical crack extension were performed with double torsion and single-edge notched bend specimens of different alumina-based ceramic composites having layered granular structure. It is shown that it is possible to increase significantly the work-of-fracture as a result of layered granular structure organization. The pecularities of structure influence on the crack propagation kinetics were investigated, and the possibilities of acceleration and deceleration of subcritical crack growth are reported.
