Abstract: The effect of the heat treatment on the fracture toughness and flexural strength of the silicon carbide – silicon nitride composites prepared by liquid-phase-sintering was investigated. The results were compared to those obtained for a reference silicon carbide material, prepared by the same fabrication route. The fracture toughness increased from 3.19 to 5.15 MPa.m1/2 due to the toughening mechanisms (crack deflection, mechanical interlocking, crack branching) occurring in the heat treated materials during th… Show more
