Mechanical properties in thermoelectric oxides: Ideal strength, deformation mechanism, and fracture toughness
The recent dramatic improvements in high-performance thermoelectric (TE) oxides provide new exciting applications in the TE field, but the mechanical properties so important for engineering applications remain largely ...
Shear-Induced Brittle Failure along Grain Boundaries in Boron Carbide
(American Chemical Society, 2018)
The role that grain boundaries (GBs) can play on mechanical properties has been studied extensively for metals and alloys. However, for covalent solids such as boron carbide (B4C), the role of GB on the inelastic response ...
