Creep Cavitation Enhanced by Glass Pocket Formation in a Tetragonal Zirconia Doped with 0.3 WT% Pure Silica

  • K. Morita (a1), K. Hiraga (a1) and Y. Sakka (a1)


The relationship between intergranular microstructures and cavitation is examined in a yttria-stabilized tetragonal zirconia doped with 0.2-0.4 wt% SiO2 under constant stress loading in tension. An increase in the initial grain size for a constant SiO2-addition or an increase in SiO2-addition for a constant grain size enhances the precipitation of a glass phase at the multiple grain junctions during deformation. Simultaneously with the enhanced glass phase precipitation, intergranular cavitation is also enhanced. This is because the precipitated glass phase act as the site of cavity formation.
