Characterizing the surface contact behaviour of ceramics - Part 1 Hardness response of glass-bonded alumina and titania
Czernuszka JT., Pages TF.
The indentation hardness of four glass-bonded ceramics has been examined as a function of load and temperature, It has been observed that the relative hardness values may interchange depending on the temperature and load of testing. For each material there are two regimes of temperature dependence. A has been possible to qualitatively correlate the transition temperature with the composition of the glassy binder phase. © 1987 Chapman and Hall Ltd.
