It is necessary to select a ceramic material to be stressed using a three-point loading scheme . The specimen must have a circular cross section, a radius of 3.8 mm (0.15 in.), and must not experience fracture or a deflection of more than 0.021 mm (8.5 x 10-4 in.) at its center when a load of 445 N (100 lbf) is applied. If the distance between support points is 50.8 mm (2 in.), which of the materials in Table 12.5 are candidates?
