Thermal stress fracture behaviour of zirconia based ceramics are described. Although partially stabilized zirconia (PSZ) and tetragonial zirconia polycrystals (TZP) ceramics show superior mechanical properties such as high fracture strength/fracture toughness, the thermal shock resistance of zirconia ceramics is anomalously low. The thermal stress fracture mechanism and improvement of the thermal shock resistance are discussed.
