The Fracture and Yield Strengths of Diamond, Silicon and Germanium

  • A. L. Ruoff

Abstract

This paper describes the elastic and plastic behavior of Group IV B covalent elements having the diamond cubic structure: germanium, silicon and diamond. Their elastic behavior is reviewed and provides a useful reference point for the discussion to follow. The state of stress beneath paraboloidal indentors is also reviewed to provide the background needed in this discussion.
