4Mechanical Issues:Properties are significantly dependent on processing – and as it relates to the level of Porosity:E = E0(1-1.9P+0.9P2) – where P is a fraction ‘porosity’fs = 0e-nP -- 0 & n are empirical values and functions of porosityBecause the very unpredictable nature of ceramic defects, we do not simply add a factor of safety for tensile loadingWe may add compressive surface loadsWe often choose to avoid tensile loading at all – most ceramic loading of any significance is compressive (consider buildings, dams, brigdes and roads!)
5Figure 6.15 Stress (σm) at the tip of a Griffith crack. Where the so called Griffith cracks are introduced into the ceramic or glass materials during processingThe crack tip “stress concentration” m can be very high since the “radius” of the crack tip () can be on the order of ionic diameters!

8Predeformation by Drawing • Drawing…(ex: monofilament fishline)-- stretches the polymer prior to use-- aligns chains in the stretching direction• Results of drawing:-- increases the elastic modulus (E) in thestretching direction-- increases the tensile strength (TS) in the-- decreases ductility (%EL)• Annealing after drawing...-- decreases alignment-- reverses effects of drawing.• Comparable to cold working in metals!Adapted from Fig , Callister 7e.

15Figure Upon heating, a crystal undergoes modest thermal expansion up to its melting point (Tm), at which a sharp increase in specific volume occurs. Upon further heating, the liquid undergoes a greater thermal expansion. Slow cooling of the liquid would allow crystallization abruptly at Tm and a retracing of the melting plot. Rapid cooling of the liquid can suppress crystallization producing a supercooled liquid. In the vicinity of the glass transition temperature (Tg), gradual solidification occurs. A true glass is a rigid solid with thermal expansion similar to the crystal, but an atomic-scale structure similar to the liquid (see Figure 4.21).

17Figure Viscosity of a typical soda–lime–silica glass from room temperature to 1,500°C. Above the glass transition temperature (~450°C in this case), the viscosity decreases in the Arrhenius fashion (see Equation 6.20).
18Figure Thermal and stress profiles occurring during the production of tempered glass. The high breaking strength of this product is due to the residual compressive stress at the material surfaces.
19Figure Modulus of elasticity as a function of temperature for a typical thermoplastic polymer with 50% crystallinity. There are four distinct regions of viscoelastic behavior: (1) rigid, (2) leathery, (3) rubbery, and (4) viscous.
20Figure 6. 46 In comparison with the plot of Figure 6 Figure In comparison with the plot of Figure 6.45, the behavior of the completely amorphous and completely crystalline thermoplastics falls below and above that for the 50% crystalline material. The completely crystalline material is similar to a metal or ceramic in remaining rigid up to its melting point.
21Figure Cross-linking produces a network structure by the formation of primary bonds between adjacent linear molecules. The classic example shown here is the vulcanization of rubber. Sulfur atoms form primary bonds with adjacent polyisoprene mers, which is possible because the polyisoprene chain molecule still contains double bonds after polymerization. [It should be noted that sulfur atoms can themselves bond together to form a molecule chain. Sometimes, cross-linking occurs by an (S)n chain, where n > 1.]
22Figure Increased cross-linking of a thermoplastic polymer produces increased rigidity of the material.
23Figure The modulus of elasticity versus temperature plot of an elastomer has a pronounced rubbery region.
24Figure Schematic illustration of the uncoiling of (a) an initially coiled linear molecule under (b) the effect of an external stress. This illustration indicates the molecular-scale mechanism for the stress versus strain behavior of an elastomer, as shown in Figure 6.51.
25Figure The stress–strain curve for an elastomer is an example of nonlinear elasticity. The initial low-modulus (i.e., low-slope) region corresponds to the uncoiling of molecules (overcoming weak, secondary bonds), as illustrated by Figure The high-modulus region corresponds to elongation of extended molecules (stretching primary, covalent bonds), as shown by Figure 6.50b. Elastomeric deformation exhibits hysteresis; that is, the plots during loading and unloading do not coincide.
26Figure Modulus of elasticity versus temperature for a variety of common polymers. The dynamic elastic modulus in this case was measured in a torsional pendulum (a shear mode). The DTUL is the deflection temperature under load, the load being 264 psi. This parameter is frequently associated with the glass transition temperature.(From Modern Plastics Encyclopedia, 1981–82, Vol. 58, No. 10A, McGraw-Hill Book Company, New York, October 1981.)
