Identification of the mechanical properties of transparent MgAl2O4 spinel by means of biaxial bending tests
Institut franco-allemand de recherches de Saint-Louis - 68300 Saint-Louis
Based on the available literature, international standards and previous studies performed at ISL, the main task of the candidate will be to carry out mechanical tests on spinel samples and develop a biaxial testing set-up. Tests results will have to be compared with other testing methods and with literature data. This work will lead to a better screening of ceramic materials, increasing the efficiency of future ballistic protections.
