Thermo-mechanical response: Role of Porosity and Microcracking (in particular)

Amit Pandey's picture

Below are references to some of our ongoing work that is published and is related to study the role of microcracking (in particular) and porosity to the thermo-mechanical response of functional ceramics. This study is  relevant to understand the structural reliability of the systems such as the SOFC's (solid oxide fuel cells) and DPF's (diesel particulate filters).
