AbstractResearch within the past two decades has achieved a dramatic upsurge of improvements in the mechanical properties of engineering ceramics. These improvements have often been made through increased toughness by novel toughening mechanisms such as the stress induced phase transformation, microcracking, fibre/whisker crack bridging, etc. These may occur not only in the frontal process zone ahead of a sharp crack, but also in the following crack wake region. The consequences of these… CONTINUE READING
