Round or square fired bars are subject to a force that tests their tensile strength. The strength can be calculated from the force and the dimensions of the cross section where the break occurred.
|Tests||Fired Strength Round Bars|
|Tests||Dry Strenth (Round Bars)|
|Tests||Dry Strength (kgf/cm2)|
|Tests||Dry Strength (Square Bars)|
|Tests||Fired Strength Square Bars|
Ceramics, by their brittle nature, have high compressive strength. But in functional ceramics we are more concerned about the tensile strength as this relates better to serviceability.
