Paper Title:
Impact Fracture Behavior of Ceramics and PE-Fiber-Reinforced Mortars
  Abstract

Ceramics will be used for power generating systems in the next generation. When they are used in this system, damage due to foreign object is inevitable. However, few systematic and comprehensive investigations have been reported on this subject. Various ceramics including fiber-reinforced mortars were investigated to understand their behavior when impacted by a spherical projectile. The volume of the cone cracks was large in ceramics which underwent transgranular fracture, while it was small in which underwent an intergranular one. Even though the energy consuming ability by the formation of surfaces was low up to 3.5% of the kinetic energy of a projectile, this ability increased with the ratio of the intergranular fracture to the transgranular one. Boron carbide showed a lower pressure as compared to the other ceramics. Fiber reinforcing increased the ballistic limits, but no clear advantage was suggested when absorbing the kinetic energy of a projectile far over its limits.
