Part of the Materials Science Research book series (MSR)

Abstract

A model for grain boundaries of MgO, Al2O3, and BeO is postulated and tested against empirical elastic, plastic flow, and fracture data. Descriptions of the various atomistic processes are given and are found to be consistent with experience. New conclusions are reached concerning the strengthening of ceramics.
