Overview

Over the past twenty-five years ceramics have become key materials in the development of many new technologies as scientists have been able to design these materials with new structures and properties. An understanding of the factors that influence their mechanical behavior and reliability is essential. This book will introduce the reader to current concepts in the field. It contains problems and exercises to help readers develop their skills. This is a comprehensive introduction to the mechanical properties of ceramics, and is designed primarily as a textbook for advanced undergraduates in materials science and engineering. It will also be of value as a supplementary text for more general courses and to industrial scientists and engineers involved in the development of ceramic-based products, materials selection and mechanical design.

    Good Intro to Brittle Materials

    This is a good reference book on material properties of ceramic materials. This is not an elementary book, it requires a moderate level of college mathematics background to follow the material. Anyone interested in material properties of ceramics with knowlege of calculus and statistics will benefit from this book. The section on Weibull analysis is well done.
