Summary

Accurate tensile properties are required for reliable design with advanced ceramics. The availability of an improved hydraulic tensile testing apparatus has made it possible to minimize several of the traditional problems of direct tensile tests of brittle materials. Relatively inexpensive specimens are utilized, but the method is limited to RT. Strength and Weibull data for hot pressed AIN are presented and compared with 4-point bend data. Optical and SEM fractography were employed to identify failure initiating flaws and enable the calculation of KIC.
