Damage Growth in Porous Ceramics


Article Preview

The paper deals with the experimental method of the mechanical properties estimation at the beginning of deformation process (elastic behaviour) of the material as well as during the whole deformation stages. The idea of the method results from the observation of the loading and unloading process of the material and analysis of the strain stage.
