Determination of Residual Stress Gradients in Al2O3 Ceramics after Thermal and Mechanical Loading
Al2O3 ceramic plates of diameter 166 mm and thickness 5 mm were subjected to frictional loading regimes. The resultant residual stress effect in the material was analyzed using the sin2y and AP methods based on a modified measurement condition for the pole angle y and the azimuth angle F on a 4 cycle goniometer. Furthermore, the frictional loading of the Al2O3 plates lead to clear differences in the residual stress state near the surface. An underlying correlation was observed between the residual stress state of the Al2O3 material and its residual strength with this effect being ascribed to the magnitude of frictional load applied.
