Dynamic Fracture Process and Strain Rate Effect of a Porous SiC Ceramic†
AbstractIn this paper, dynamic fracture process and strain rate effect of a porous SiC ceramic were investigated. The failure process under dynamic loading conditions was monitored by a high-speed camera. Digital image correlation (DIC) method was further utilized to calculate the surface strain field. The high-speed images show that crack initiates in the center of the specimen and then propagates to the entire specimen under dynamic loading. In addition, DIC result showed that cracks occur on the surface of the specimen formed a band. And the band finally caused the collapse of the specimen. The test results showed that compressive strength of the porous SiC ceramic is rate sensitive. Under quasi-static conditions, the compressive strength is about 120 MPa, while in dynamic conditions strength increased to 247 MPa. Energy absorption during the deformation process is much larger under dynamic loading.
