Compressive Testing of Ceramics

  title={Compressive Testing of Ceramics},
  author={Hideo Awaji and Yasuo Nagano},
Research has been conducted toward developing a compressive testing method more suitable than present procedures for use on advanced ceramics with extremely high compressive strength. A dumbbell-shaped specimen is proposed as an edge-effect-free shape, and testing equipment with a self-aligned system is suggested to estimate accurately the compressive strength. Experimental results for some structural ceramics indicate that the columnar specimen prescribed in JIS has edge effects, whereas a… CONTINUE READING
