Mechanical Properties of Ceramic Laminates
The progress of research efforts on the mechanical properties of ceramic laminates is reviewed. Laminates with weak interface are described with respect to their failure mode and the criterions to achieve graceful failure. For laminates with strong interfaces basic principles concerning the residual stresses and their influence on crack propagation are introduced. The implications for strength, indentation strength, strength distributions, macroscopic R-curves and threshold strength are discussed.
