Summary

Both deterministic and probabilistic fracture mechanics are applied for PSZ ceramics in bending. Comparison is given between reliability levels achieved with different sensitivities in NDE and fracture mechanics estimates of the critical flaw size. Implications for practical qualify assessment are discussed.
