Comparison of different failure tests for pharmaceutical tablets: applicability of the Drucker-Prager failure criterion.

Abstract

Several tests can be used to study the strength of pharmaceutical tablets. Equations exist in the literature to transform the failure force measured into a failure stress which can be considered as a characteristic of the strength of the material. For each failure test, the stress state at failure is different, and as a consequence, the failure stresses… (More)
