Abstract:

The influence of post-grinding treatments, such as vacuum bakeout and exposure to various environments before or during testing, on the tensile strength of alumina has been studied. The dependence of strength on attainable surface finish, post-grinding treatments, and microstructure is shown for four alumina bodies. Results of profilometric and microscopic evaluations of the ground surfaces are presented. Author
