Summary

Experimental results are presented for liquid N2 cyclic-flexure tests which indicate the presence of true mechanical-fatigue effects in some ceramics. The experimental results indicate a connection between microcracking and fatigue susceptibility), as well as a dependence on specimen size. No cyclic-fatigue effects were found in the phase-transformation-toughened materials studied. Qualitative theoretical models are proposed to explain the observed results.
