Shear Strength of Titanium Diboride under Shock Wave and Static Compressions
The mechanical behavior of ceramics under high pressures and temperatures is a subject of considerable interest. Since high pressures can be generated under static or dynamic conditions, it is necessary to measure mechanical properties of the materials under both. In the present work, compression and shear strength of titanium diboride measured under plane shock wave compression is revealingly compared with the recent measurement of compression and shear strength of titanium diboride obtained under static high pressures.
