Research of the Sensitivities of Fracture Strength of Porous Ceramic Materials to the Relevant Parameters
In this paper, based on the study of effects of various physical mechanisms on the fracture strength of porous ceramic materials, a thermo-damage strength theoretical model applied to each stage of temperature is established. Using the model, the sensitivities of fracture strength to relevant parameters and their variation with temperature are studied in detail. The results show that under low temperature the strength is sensitive to the changes of porosity, pore size and pore shape factor, while under high temperature the effects of porosity, pore size and pore shape factor on the strength compared to the temperature are negligible, yet the strength is very sensitive to the Young’s modulus, thus the Young’s modulus is the dominant of strength under high temperature. This study will provide a theoretical basis and guidance to the design and application of porous ceramic materials.
