  • Duality of failure mechanisms (slow crack growth from pre-existing defects versus cumulative creep damage) is examined in a silicon nitride advanced ceramic recently tested at elevated-temperatures. Static (constant stress over time), dynamic (monotonically-increasing stress over time), and cyclic (fluctuating stress over time) fatigue behaviors were evaluated in tension in ambient air at temperatures of 1150, 1260, and 1370{degrees}C for a hot-isostatically pressed monolithic {beta}-silicon nitride. At 1150{degrees}C, all three types of fatigue results showed the similar failure mechanism of slow crack growth (SCG). At 1260 and 1370{degrees}C the failure mechanism was more complex. Failure under static fatigue was dominated bymore » the accumulation of creep damage via diffusion-controlled cavities. In dynamic fatigue, failure occurred by SCG at high stress rates (>10{sup {minus}2}MPa/s) and by creep damage at low stress rates ({le}10{sup {minus}2} MPa/s). For cyclic fatigue, such rate effects influenced the stress rupture results in which times to failure were greater for dynamic and cyclic fatigue than for static fatigue. Elucidation of failure mechanisms is necessary for accurate prediction of long-term survivability and reliability of structural ceramics.« less
  • The mechanical and physical behavior of two commercial MgO partially stabilized zirconia ceramics (Mg-PSZ) were studied as a function of temperature, time, stress, and environment. The characteristics of the precipitates within the cubic grains in these ceramics were studied via x-ray diffraction, (% monoclinic) and dilatometry (transformation temperatures). Application of stress to these ceramics at temperatures in thee range 800 to 1000/sup 0/C results in an initial strength increase followed by a strength decrease. These changes do not occur when no applied stress (sigma/sub a/) is present. For TS-PSZ at 1000/sup 0/C, when sigma/sub a/ = 172 MPa = 0.6more » sigma/sub f/ (fast fracture strength), the strength increases to approx. = 120% of the initial strength at approx. = 200 h followed by a decrease to approx. = 85% of initial strength at 1000 h. The resistance to subcritical crack growth at 22/sup 0/C in these ceramics increases with increase in toughness and is also sensitive to the local concentration of H/sub 2/O. Higher H/sub 2/O concentration results in accelerated crack growth.« less
  • Corrosion-fatigue crack propagation experiments were conducted on several low-alloy steels in elevated temperature aqueous environments, and experimental parameters included temperature, sulfur content of the steel, applied potential level, and dissolved hydrogen (and in one case, dissolved oxygen) concentration in the water. Specimen potentials were controlled potentiostatically, and the observation (or non-observation) of accelerated fatigue crack growth rates was a complex function of the above parameters. Electrochemical results and the postulated explanation for the complex behavior are given in Part II.
