Summary

In order to examine mode-I & II type fracture behavior of ceramic joints, the interface element was proposed as one of the simple models which represent the mechanism of failure in an explicit manner. It was applied to the analyses of four point bending test and asymmetrical four point bending test for SiC/SiC composite specimen joined by ARCJoinT™. By using a new type interface potential, which is a sum of those for opening and shear mode, both the bending and asymmetrical bending tests were simulated. From the comparison with the experiments, the surface energy at the interface between the joint and composite was estimated to be about 3.0 N/m regardless of the fracture mode.
