Crack deflection in a multi-layer composite is a mechanism that has received great attention because of its capability in providing substantial improvement in mechanical property of the component. This project aims to study the crack deflection mechanism through layered ceramic composites, which constitute of strong dense Al2O3 layers separated by weak porous Al2O3 layers. Both the dense layers and the porous layers were fabricated by tape casting technique.
