Volumes 11 and 12 of the series contain the 90 papers of an international symposium in Karlsruhe, Germany, in July 1995, which continued the investigation of failure behavior in monolithic engineering ceramics and reinforced ceramics. Addresses recent developments in the understanding and modelling of the fracture processes in brittle materials. In addition to those identified in the subtitle, the main themes include surface effects, composite materials, high-temperature behavior, ceramic- metal joints, and fatigue. The 46 papers of this volume discuss utilization techniques for structural ceramics, characterizing the process zone in a structural ceramic, the non-linear behavior and fracture energy of ceramics, new fracture statistics for brittle materials, and other topics.
