Zirconia Engineering Ceramics
Zirconia-based systems have been extensively studied for some 25 years, and a wealth of exciting results has been amassed. This book tracks the progress made in the field; from very early phase stability work, to modern approaches which involve quite sophisticated models for the transformation toughening that is associated with the tetragonal to monoclinic phase transformation.
The volume begins with the basic aspects, followed by a consideration of some of the science which underpins this material's mechanical and physical properties. It concludes with details of the production of high-quality zirconia ceramics. This book will serve both as an interesting reference work, and as a starting point for advancing the understanding of zirconia ceramics.
