Abstract: The mechanical properties of ceramics materials can be tailored by designing their microstructures. Residual stress is one of the important factors for controlling the crack propagation and consequently improving the mechanical properties. On the other hand, development of the crystallographic orientation even in a diamagnetic ceramic can be controlled by colloidal processing in a strong magnetic field. In this study, alumina/alumina laminar composites with different crystalline-oriented layers were fabricated…
