Abstract:

To predict the strength under mechanical and thermal loading, and predict the improvement in strength by prestressing or preloading, it is necessary to know the strength under biaxial stresses, and for some thick sections even triaxial stresses. Biaxial stresses state testing was conducted in the compression-compression quadrant. Data was obtained which will allow the determination of the failure envelope in this quadrant. Hopefully, the data will ultimately help establish a comprehensive theory of the biaxial strength of high density, high strength brittle materials such as alumina, silicon carbide, and silicon nitride.
