A general expression for the failure probability of a brittle material is developed by using the properties of flaw size distribution and the stress necessary to fracture an inclined crack. A comparison is made with Weibull analysis and an expression for the Weibull modulus, which is known to be an empirical material constant, is related to the properties of the flaw size distribution of a material. Limitations in the application of Weibull analysis are also discussed.

This paper deals with the general problem of crack extension in a combined stress field where a crack can grow in any arbitrary direction with reference to its original position. In a situation, when both of the stress-intensity factors,k1,k2 are present along the crack front, the crack may spread in any direction in a plane normal to the crack edge depending on the loading conditions. Preliminary results indicate that the direction of crack growth and fracture toughness for the mixed problem of...

A new analytical method for calculating crack density distributions from Hertzian fracture data is presented. This is the first correct analysis to be reported within the limitations of the assumptions made and is also one which can be readily applied. Results are presented for a piece of polished pure silica glass and their statistical significance is discussed.

Abstract null null Recent developments in Ultra-High Temperature Ceramics (UHTC) processing have allowed for the introduction of significant amounts of porosity into these materials. These developments have widened the scope for how UHTCs can be integrated into hypersonic vehicles. Functional grading of porosity allows density and thermal conductivity to be spatially tailored to minimize weight penalty while maintaining thermal shielding and resilience to thermal shock. However, added porosity a...

Abstract null null This study analyzed the influence of the sample volume, number of tested specimen, and testing method on the flexural strength of fabric-reinforced ceramic matrix composites. For this purpose, seven different batches of C/C-SiC were prepared with four different sample thicknesses to determine the flexural strengths and Weibull moduli by three- and four-point flexural tests. The result showed that C/C-SiC exhibits a size effect of strength under bending load because a decrease ...

Abstract null null Topologically Interlocked Material (TIM) systems are assemblies of individual building blocks shaped such that individual elements cannot be removed from the assembly with disassembly of the entire system. Here, TIM systems based on irregular quadrilateral square tessellations are considered. The mechanical properties of such TIM assemblies are investigated and compared to those of the periodic reference TIM system. Finite element computations are performed to obtain force - d...

It is common among many vein鈥搕ype tungsten deposits in southern China that the thickness of ore veins increases from null 1 m with increasing depth. A five鈥揻loor zonation model for the vertical trend of vein morphology was proposed in the 1960s and has been widely applied for predicting ore bodies at deeper levels, but the causative mechanisms for such a zonation remain poorly understood. The Piaotang tungsten鈥搕in deposit, one of the birthplaces of the five鈥揻loor zonation model, is chosen as a c...

The oxygen transport membrane (OTM) is a high-density ion-conducting ceramic membrane that selectively transfers oxygen ions and electrons through the pressure differential across its layers. It can operate at more than 800 掳C and serves as an economical method for gas separation. However, it is difficult to predict the material properties of the OTM through experiments or analyses because its structure contains pores and depends on the characteristics of the ceramic composite. In addition, the ...

Experimental strength tests are performed on two series of nominally equal plate specimens of annealed soda-lime glass subjected to either ring-on-ring or ball-on-ring bending. The Weibull effective area which represents a fictitious surface area exposed to uniform tension is calculated using closed-form solutions. Finite-size weakest-link systems are implemented numerically in a computationally intensive procedure for random sampling of plates extracted from a virtual jumbo pane whose surface a...
