1 Initiation-Controlled Thermal Fracture Let us first consider the case where
initiation-controlled fracture by thermal cracking cannot be tolerated as in glasses
, porcelain, electronic ceramics, and whiteware. If an unconstrained rod of length
L is ...

fracture strength-crack size dependence in R -curve and non-H-curve type
ceramics. For R-curve materials, toughness increases with crack size up to Of
10.35. Note that in each case the fracture toughness value can be optimized with
appropriate ceramic chemistry or heat treatment. Likewise, since toughening in
zirconia-based alloys is achieved by the energy-consuming transformation of ...

This is one of the best textbooks on physical metallurgy. My preference is for Dieter's book, but that is because it was the textbook for my physical metallurgy course in graduate school. Hertzberg's book is more modern. Read full review
This is a great book, not only work as a text book, but also a sophisticate reference book.
