Residual Strain Profiles in Alumina-Zirconia Ceramic Composites
Residual strain profiles were measured by synchrotron X-ray radiation in Al2O3/Y-stabilized ZrO2 (YSZ) ceramic laminates. Different stacking sequences were employed, including alternating layers containing 5 and 40 vol.% YSZ. Residual strains were found to be fairly constant within each layer; although they change at the interface between layers with different compositions. Different behaviour is observed for the strains along the in-plane and normal directions.
