Abstract

The room temperature crack growth resistance behavior of polycrystalline lanthanum-doped bismuth ferrite-lead titanate was characterized with disc compact-tension specimens. Through lanthanum doping the tetragonality can be adjusted from 1.01 to 1.10, while retaining a mixed phase system. Experimental measurements show changes in toughening behavior with increasing c/a ratio. Fracture results are discussed in conjunction with macroscopic ferroelastic constitutive behavior and stress-dependent neutron diffraction measurements to elucidate the role of a mixed phase system with heterogeneous mechanical properties. Additional X-ray diffraction measurements were performed to determine the effect of possible crack-tip stress-induced phase transformations on R-curve behavior. (C) 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
