Abstract

Mechanical damage mechanisms in TiC-1080 steel cermets were characterized by transmission electron microscopy. Quasi-static failure occurs by blunting of interfacial flaws, and by interfacial cracking, with subsequent propagation into the steel matrix. Dynamic loading induces an additional failure mechanism of transgranular TiC cracking without extension to the steel matrix.
