Abstract

"Tungsten carbide based functionally designed cellular (FDC) architectures have been prepared using WC-6%Co as the cell material and both W-Ni-Fe and Ni as cell boundary materials in varying quantities. These compositions were chosen based on their ability to fail gracefully when produced as laminates in a prior study. While non-catastrophic flexure behavior was not exhibited by the FDC samples in this study, fracture surfaces of FDC flexure samples clearly show the presence of crack deflecting behavior. Owing to the increased complexity of the FDC architectures, more work is needed to accurately predict their behavior"--Conclusions, leaf 77.
