Labeled Weibull Plot of a C-Derived Si3N4-SiC Nanocomposite
Four-point bending strength and Weibull distribution of the strength values of a carbon derived Si3N4-SiC nanocomposite have been investigated. The fracture origins were identified and characterized and a “labeled Weibull plot” was constructed. The fracture origins are surface, subsurface and volume located technological defects with a dimension from 10 µm to 180 µm, mainly in the form of cluster of pores and large SiC grains.
