Linear Non-Elastic Fracture of Brittle Materials; Role Of Residual Stresses and Application on Refractories

  • D. Themines
  • F. Osterstock


Linear non-elastic fracture mechanics has been used to study thermal shock damage of two refractaires with the assumption that the non-elasticity is the consequence of the relaxation of residual thermal miss-match stresses through microcracking. The results are consistant with the behavior in conditions of use of these materials.
