Three different test geometries were used to apply shear loading to fracture glass-to-metal joints typical of seals intended for use in planar solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs): asymmetric compression; symmetric compression; and four-point asymmetric bending. The measured apparent shear strengths were found to differ by an order of magnitude depending on the test configuration employed. In particular, the apparent shear strength measured in the asymmetric compression test was very low. Conversely… CONTINUE READING
