Sintering and Mechanical Properties of Alumina Ceramics Prepared by Nanosize Alumina
This work examined the mechanical properties of alumina that can directly be enhanced by ratio of nano sized alumina powders additives to micro size alumina powders (n/m ratio). These new materials have mechanical properties that are strongly grain size dependent and often significantly different from those of their coarser grained counter parts. The mechanical characteristics of samples were observed by using the indentation test system. This data shows that the relative density for the sample is increased with increasing Meyer hardness.
