The stress-strain behavior of ceramic materials is greatly influenced by microstructural features ranging from the presence of point defects in single crystals to the size and location of pores and nature of grain boundaries in poly crystals. Several factors may affect the behavior at any one time, and the analysis of experimental data, particularly for poly crystals, is thus extremely difficult. This review examines the interpretation of mechanical behavior in materials having the rock salt structure, with particular emphasis on the role of impurities, the significance of grain boundary and/or intragranular porosity, and the problems associated with the intersection of slip bands.
