Paper Title:
Strength Degradation Flaws in the Liquid-Phase-Sintered SiC Based Ceramics
  Abstract

The effect of the heat treatment on the fracture toughness and flexural strength of the silicon carbide – silicon nitride composites prepared by liquid-phase-sintering was investigated. The results were compared to those obtained for a reference silicon carbide material, prepared by the same fabrication route. The fracture toughness increased from 3.19 to 5.15 MPa.m1/2 due to the toughening mechanisms (crack deflection, mechanical interlocking, crack branching) occurring in the heat treated materials during the crack propagation. However, the flexural strength decreased after the heat treatment of the experimental materials. The strength of the investigated materials was degraded by the presence of processing flaws mainly in the form of pores, clusters of pores, and SiC agglomerates.
