Abstract:The peculiarities of contact-induced deformation in nano-, micro- and macroscopic scale of silicon nitride ceramic composites have been studied by using quasistatic macro- and microindentation techniques, dynamic nanoindentation technique and microstructure investigations. The addition of multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) to the ceramic matrix showed the modification of microstructure leading to the modification of mechanical behavior of material: increase of fracture toughness along with the decrease of har…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific 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 researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
