Summary
"The microstructure, hardness, fracture toughness, Young's modulus, strength and Weibull modulus of silicon carbide-titanium diboride (SiC-TiB2) ceramics were studied. First, SiC-TiB2 ceramics with 15 vol.% TiB2 particles were processed using two green processing methods, spray drying (ST) and ball milling (SiC-15TiB2). In addition, SiC-TiB2 ceramics with TiB2 contents ranging from 0 to 100 vol.% were produced to determine a TiB2 content that produced the best combination of mechanical properties. From spray drying, segregation of the TiB2 particles in ST led to a granule-like microstructure and spontaneous microcracking in the final ceramic. In ceramics containing 20 and 40 vol.% TiB2, the TiB2 particle sizes were also large enough to allow for spontaneous microcracking. Spontaneous microcracking decreased the hardness from 28 GPa for SiC to 24 GPa for SiC-TiB2 with TiB2 contents of 80 vol.% or higher. In contrast, fracture toughness increased from 2 MPa·m1/2 for SiC to 6̃ MPa·m[superscript 1/2] for SiC containing 40 vol.% TiB2 or more. Using a two-parameter Weibull analysis, SiC with 20 vol.% TiB2 had the highest average strength (522 MPa), followed by SiC-15TiB2 (500 MPa), then SiC with 40 vol.% TiB2 (420 MPa), and ST (380 MPa). While microcracking in ST lowered the strength, hardness, and elastic modulus compared to SiC-15TiB2, the granule-like microstructure combined with microcracking, narrowed the flaw size distribution of ST and boosted the Weibull modulus of ST to 21 compared to 12 for SiC-15TiB2, which had a uniform distribution of TiB2 particles. The Weibull moduli of SiC containing 20 and 40 vol.% TiB2 was also boosted to 17, compared to 12 for a TiB2 content of 15 vol.%. To maximize each property, TiB2 particle sizes should be kept just below the spontaneous microcracking threshold to prevent spontaneous flaw formation"--Abstract, page iv
