Summary and Perspective for the Microstructural Dependence of Mechanical Properties of Dense
Monolithic and Composite Ceramics

This book provides a comprehensive review, evaluation, and summary of the dependence of mechanical
properties on grain and particle parameters of size, shape, and orientation for monolithic ceramics and
ceramic composites.

Emphasizes the critical link between fabrication and ceramic performance!

Including over 1950 references, equations, photographs, tables, and drawings, Mechanical Properties of
Ceramics and Composites
covers relevant models, reviews data, and identifies strengths and weaknesses in each
discusses fracture energy and toughness values, crack propagation, tensile strength, and thermal shock
gauges compressive strength, hardness, erosion, and wear
evaluates high-tech ceramics, porcelains, and crystallized glasses
analyzes whisker, platelet, and particulate ceramic composites
focuses on lower and moderate temperature testing conditions, while outlining high temperature creep
and stress rupture
demonstrates and documents cross correlations, differences, and variations in the microstructural
dependence of properties
and more!

Providing a complete overview of the range, capability, and tailorability of ceramic properties, Mechanical
Properties of Ceramics and Composites is ideal for ceramic, materials, electrical, automotive,
mechanical, and chemical engineers and scientists; metallurgists; and upper-level undergraduate and
graduate students in these disciplines.
