It was found that the variation in exural strength with quench temperature was influenced by the CBN grain size. Polycrystalline material containing small CBN grains showed a discontinuous drop in measured exural strength above a material dependent critical quench temperature difference, delta Tc. The sharp decrease in measured strength is accompanied by unstable crack propagation. Material containing a significantly larger CBN grain size, exhibited a gradual decrease in strength above the critical quench conditions. The experimental observations agreed with an established theory developed for thermal shock of alumina. The theoretically calculated critical temperatures agree well with the observed experimental data for each material when a aw size equal to the CBN grain size is employed.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Copyright (published version):||2012 Elsevier||Keywords:||Cubic Boron Nitride;fracture;thermal shock||DOI:||10.1016/j.jeurceramsoc.2012.03.013||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
