Determination of Flaw Size Distributions by the Crack-off Process

The crack-off process is a new alternative to diamond sawing for the cutting of brittle materials. The process involves exposing brittle rods (or plates) to biaxial fluid pressure. Fluid penetration into surface flaws causes fracture at pressures strongly dependent on the severity of the flaws. A me...
