In-situ 4-point flexural testing and synchrotron micro X-ray computed tomography of 3D printed hierarchical-porous ultra-high temperature ceramic

Additive Manufacturing 2022 Volume 54, Article 102728

3D printed ceramics have received much attention of late due to the ability to manufacture complex near net shapes with a range of structures across multiple length scales. The introduction of hierarchical features offers a wider array of properties, yet with this comes additional unknowns as to their limits including the mechanisms behind failures. The present work applies in-situ Synchrotron micro X-ray computed tomography (μXCT) with 4-point flexural testing to study and further understand the failure pattern of 3D printed hierarchical porous ultra-high temperature ceramics. Samples were imaged at incremental load steps to observe the propagation of defects until final…
