A Comprehensive and Self-Contained Treatment of the Theory and Practical Applications of Ceramic MaterialsWhen failure occurs in ceramic materials, it is often catastrophic, instantaneous, and total. Now in its Second Edition, this important book arms readers with a thorough and accurate understanding of the causes of these failures and how to design ceramics for failure avoidance. It systematically covers:Stress and strainTypes of mechanical behaviorStrength of defect-free solidsLinear elastic fracture mechanicsMeasurements of elasticity, strength, and fracture toughnessSubcritical crack propagationToughening mechanisms in ceramicsEffects of microstructure on toughness and strengthCyclic fatigue of ceramicsThermal stress and thermal shock in ceramicsFractographyDislocation and plastic deformation in ceramicsCreep and superplasticity of ceramicsCreep rupture at high temperatures and safe life designHardness and wearAnd moreWhile maintaining the first edition's reputation for being an indispensable professional resource, this new edition has been updated with sketches, explanations, figures, tables, summaries, and problem sets to make it more student-friendly as a textbook in undergraduate and graduate courses on the mechanical properties of ceramics.
