Item description for Ceramics: Mechanical Properties, Failure Behaviour, Materials Selection (Springer Series in Materials Science) by Dietrich Munz...
Ceramic materials are widely used as components in a great variety of applications. They are attractive due to their good high temperature strength, high wear resistance, good corrosion restistance and other special physical properties. Their major drawback is their brittleness and the large scatter of their mechanical properties. This book describes failure phenomena in ceramic materials under mechanical loading, methods for determining the material properties, and the principles that one should apply when selecting a material. The fracture-mechanical and statistical principles and their use in describing the scatter of strength and lifetime are also covered. Special chapters are devoted to creep behaviour, multiaxial failure criteria and thermal shock behaviour.

review of Ceramics : Mechanical Properties, Failure... Apr 4, 2000
This book was exactly what I was looking for. I needed a clear, concise book on ceramic materials and material properties. The one thing I would suggest for improvement is to include a section on designing with ceramic materials, things like shrinkage factors and material specific rules of thumb.
