Preparation and Characterization of Alumina/TZP Particulate Composites
Particulate composites prepared by sintering compacts of Al2O3 and TZP powders, in air at 1500 and 1600 oC have been characterized in terms of microstructure and mechanical properties. The mechanical properties of the composites appear to be controlled by three main factors: the grain size of major phase, type of intergranular TZP, and presence of residual stress.
