Kurzbeschreibung (Abstract)

ension—tension cyclic loading tests have been conducted on a coarse-grained alumina ceramic that exhibits toughnesscurve behavior by grain-interlock bridging. Fatigue effects are observed in the regions of both short cracks, using indentation flaws, and long cracks, using compact-tension specimens. A true mechanical fatigue effect is demonstrated by running the tests below the static fatigue limit. A custom-made device for in situ observation of crack propagation in the scanning electron microscope enables us to identify bridge degradation as a cause of the fatigue process. “Wear” debris cumulates at the sliding intergranular frictional contact points, indicating a loss of traction at the junction. The basis of a fracture mechanics model describing the effect of this frictional degradation in reducing crack-tip shielding is outlined and fitted to the data. It is suggested that the bridge degradation fatigue mechanism may be widespread in polycrystalline ceramics with pronounced toughness curves.
