Abstract: The paper presents the analysis of the fracture path in composites with the alumina or zirconia matrix containing inclusions of another oxide or tungsten carbide. The description concerns the fracture of composite systems with 10 vol.% of inclusions (particulate composites), other three-systems with 33 vol.% of inclusions of each phase and the two phase composite with the equal phase content (50 : 50 vol.%). The different phase proportion and diversified content of inclusions cause significant differences in t…
