The State-of-the-Art of Controlling Intergranular Fracture and Brittleness by Grain Boundary Engineering
In last two decades it has been extensively studied whether the grain boundary engineering can be effectively applied to controlling intergranular fracture and brittleness of different kinds of brittle materials. Grain boundary engineering has been well established. A new processing method based on magnetic field application has reached a new stage of grain boundary engineering.
