High temperature mechanical testing of ceramics : A survey of testing equipment and material supply
This report describes the results of a survey of test equipment in Europe suitable for the high temperature strength and creep testing of monolithic ceramics. The availability of suitable sources of large batches of high quality ceramic materials has also been surveyed and the findings are described. The work represents the preliminary stage of a larger experimental programme aimed at harmonising testing practice in Europe. It has been demonstrated that a basis exists for an intercomparison exercise to assess the reliability of property measurement and procedures, and recommendations are made for a collaborative programme of testing and research.
