Abstract:Resistance to brittle cracking is one of the most important functional properties of sialon ceramics. Evaluation of the resistance requires an analysis of decohesion processes occuring in the material. Aiming at a comprehensive description of the morphology of typically brittle fractures, a quantitative characterization was made using different methods and techniques, regarding the surface of fractures formed in a three-point bending test. By using the parameter Sdr, determined via the surface stereometry meth… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
