Strength and reliability of WC-Co cemented carbides: understanding microstructural effects on the basis of R-curve behavior and fractography (2018-02)
Open AccessStrength and reliability of WC-Co cemented carbides (hardmetals) are dependent on effective fracture toughness as well as on nature, size and distribution of processing flaws. Regarding toughness, they exhibit a crack ...
The influence of unshielded small cracks in the fracture toughness of yttria and of ceria stabilised zirconia (Elsevier, 2016-01-01)
Restricted access - publisher's policyThe fracture toughness, Ric of two 3Y-ZrO2 with different grain size (177 and 330 nm) and 12Ce-ZrO2 were determined from a sharp micro-machined notch by Ultra-Short Pulsed Laser Ablation (UPLA) where a micro-cracked zone ...
