Abstract: A fractographic procedure was developed and applied for ordinary ceramic refractory materials with a rather large size of heterogeneities and defects. It is based on a stereooptical method for generation of digital surface profiles which are evaluated by an autocorrelation function. Furthermore, a lateral correlation length is derived. A group of seven refractory materials was characterised by mechanical and fracture mechanical investigations, and the same specimens had been characterized by the fractographic …
