Hardness of Ceramic Single Crystals

  • I. J. McColm


The outstanding achievements of dislocation theory when applied to the mechanical properties of materials make it the natural source for workers in the materials hardness area to turn to when seeking to rationalize collected data. This has been particularly true when hardness anisotropy has been observed and then considered theoretically.
