Strength Response and Failure Analysis of Ceramic Alumina Tiles
Static loading and impact tests of ceramic alumina tiles have shown a very interesting behaviour of tough, brittle, and high energy absorbing materials. Strain gauges techniques and data acquisition were used in previous research for static and low velocity impact testing. A static-dynamic equivalence was done through a calibration procedure of the measuring system. The research is continued in this paper by using the digital image correlation method with the complete displacement and strain history acquired till the failure of the ceramic tiles of different compositions, proving the capacity of such materials to be used for particular purpose applications.
