Coupling between elastic strains and phase transition in dense pure zirconia polycrystals

Abstract

A deep understanding of the solid-state phase transition processes of zirconia is a mandatory requirement for the development of new zirconia-based materials useful for many industrial applications. For five decades, the monoclinic ⇔ tetragonal phase transition is described as a martensitic one and it is well known that it is associated with a large unit cell volume variation that promotes the appearance of elastic strains and also microcracking. In the present paper, we study, through in situ high temperature x-ray diffraction experiments, the coupling between strain relaxation and the martensitic phase transition into a pure zirconia bulk polycrystal. Quantitative analysis of the diffraction signal allows us to disentangle, with respect to the temperature variation, the phase transition and the microcracking processes, and we demonstrate that a high temperature postelaboration thermal treatment induces an increase in the stored elastic energy. Finally, we show that in such polycrystals exhibiting a crystal size distribution and in which the crystals are under internal stresses, the tetragonal to monoclinic phase transition process evolves from a first order one to a second order one when the temperature decreases
