Summary

Los Alamos capabilities for the multiaxial fracture testing of ceramic composites were described. These capabilities Include fracture strength In uniaxial tension, tor' sion, combined tension/torsion, and tension/compression/internal pressure for axi-symmetric test specimens such as round rods and tubes, as well as mixed-mode fracture toughness testing.
