Over the past twenty-five years ceramics have become key materials in the development of many new technologies as scientists have been able to design these materials with new structures and properties. An understanding of the factors that influence their mechanical behavior and reliability is essential. This book will introduce the reader to current concepts in the field. It contains problems and exercises to help readers develop their skills. This is a comprehensive introduction to the mechanical properties of ceramics, and is designed primarily as a textbook for advanced undergraduates in materials science and engineering. It will also be of value as a supplementary text for more general courses and to industrial scientists and engineers involved in the development of ceramic-based products, materials selection and mechanical design.

Ceramic materials are finding use in a myriad of new applications as scientists design these materials with new structures and properties. Some of these new applications are structural and it is essential to understand the factors that control the mechanical behavior. Non-structural applications are also being developed. In both cases, it is necessary to design mechanically reliable materials. This book introduces the reader to the essential and current concepts in the field, as a learning text for students and as a useful reference source for practicing engineers.Review:
