R-Curve Behavior in a Gas-Pressure Sintered Silicon Nitride
R-curves, fracture resistance (KR) as a function of crack extension (Δa), of a gas-pressure sintered monolithic Si3N4 were determined by controlled flaw/strength technique. Rising R-curve behavior was observed, confirming the operation of microstructural toughening process during crack growth. The R-curve parameters, k and m in the equation, KR=k(Δa)m, were determined to 30.301 and 0.1146, respectively. Microstructural observation of growing crack revealed that the bridging in the crack wake by unbroken ligament of large elongated ${beta}$-grains was the mechanism primarily for the rising R-curve behavior.
