Paper Title:
Prohibition Effects on the Crack Propagation of Al2O3-ZrO2 Nano-Composite Ceramics under Ultrasonic Vibration
  Abstract

This paper presents a research on the effects of ultrasonic frequencies of 19.9 kHz, 23.6 kHz and 29.3 kHz on both of cyclic amplitude and fatigue life of Al2O3-ZrO2 nano-composite ceramics. According to the high-cyclic-life tests at low load level, some prohibition influence on the process of crack initiation and propagation under ultrasonic vibration is revealed as frequencies are raised from 19.9 kHz to 29.3 kHz. During the low load level tests, the toughness increment induced by the transcrystalline fracture is found in the scanning electronic micrographs of the fractures, which shows the existence of the inhibition effect on the crack initiation and propagation. At the same time, the fracture XRD indicates that t-m phase transition of ZrO2 under 29.3 kHz is higher than that under 19.9 kHz, which means that both the required cyclic amplitude and the fatigue life can be improved if the ultrasonic frequency is increased to 23.6 kHz. All the test results show that high frequencies exhibit stronger toughening improvements than the lower ones do. This paper is a pre-research for the ultrasonic ceramic grinding and the conclusions obtained are meaningful for the study of the crack propagation mechanism during the grinding.
