Summary

A technique to identifi strain mismatch in bodies of alumina prepared by slip casting has been developed. The strain mismatch, which manifests itself as defbrmotion of an originally flat beam into the shape of an arc, can be quantified by determining the curvature of the sample. The curvature observed here for samples prepared from alumina ranges from -1 to +3 l/m. The direction and magnitude of the curvature could be correlated with the composition of the slurries (volume percentage solids, dispersant concenmon, and binder concentration) used to prepare the slip cast samples.
