Ceramic materials have properties well suited for structural applications such as hardness, relatively low density and high resistance to corrosion and wear. However, its widespread use in structural applications will never be possible if their response is not optimized for long-term low mechanical. Any possibility of massive use of ceramic materials for the manufacture of structural components involves the design and development of microstructures that do break the mechanical behavior of brittle materials. Thus, ICV working on obtaining ceramic materials with improved mechanical behavior.
Broadly speaking, using three basic approaches: improvement of single-phase microstructure of materials, development of materials and development of monolithic multiphase ceramic lamellar structures. In the latter two combinations are designed elastic properties, thermal and mechanical properties of different phases / layers in order to create mechanisms of reinforcement. The combination of the determination and analysis of properties of materials mictroestructurales allows existing relationships microstructure-mechanical design to allow new lines of action on the variables of processing materials to optimize their behavior.
