Structural Micro-Layered Ceramics with Surfaces under Tension and Compression with Increasing Apparent Fracture Toughness

Abstract:

Article Preview

Two different designs of high fracture toughness micro-laminate ceramics were produced containing 50 μm thick Si3N4 layers and 100 μm thick Si3N4 + TiN layers. The first design with external tensile layers had a predicted maximum apparent fracture toughness of 10.5 MPa m1/2. The second design with external compressive layers had a predicted maximum apparent fracture toughness of 18.0 MPa m1/2. The fracture toughness of these micro-laminates was tested by the SEVNB method. A stiff testing machine was used to measure the R-curve behavior by observing crack growth in single notched specimens. A soft testing machine was used to measure the R-curve behavior using several specimens with notches at different depths.
