Summary

A joint European research program organised by the European Structural Integrity Society (ESIS) is presented. A complete set of material properties and data indispensable for design will be measured for a commercially available silicon nitride ceramic. The data set will comprise all relevant strength, crack extension parameters and cyclic fatigue data at room and also at elevated temperatures. Data correlated to contact mechanical problems and wear will also be determined.
