Paper Title:
Comparison of R-Curve Behavior of Si3N4 Measured by Indentation Method and Single-Edge V-Notched Beam Technique (SEVNB)
  Abstract

Study compare R-curve behaviour of silicon nitride obtained using Vickers indented beam specimens and single edge V-notched beam (SEVNB). R-curve measurement realized by Vickers indented beam was reported by Krause. Crack growth using single edge V-notched beam was observed in situ. The indentation experiments, in comparison with SEVNB method revealed higher R-curve values (KR=3.3 – 4.8 MPa.m1/2). The discrepancy in the R-curve results is attributed to inaccuracy related to the determination of indentation toughness. The indentation fracture toughness may include the aspects of crack opening behaviour, residual indentation stress intensity.
