A study of hot pressed B(4)C-based laminates, after rolling and without rolling, has been performed to elucidate the existence of fracture resistance/crack length anisotropy induced by this processing technique. While the crack lengths/fracture resistance was affected significantly by the presence of the residual stresses in B(4)C/B(4)C-ZrB(2) laminates, no differences in Vickers crack lengths were observed in B(4)C/B(4)C laminates prepared by rolling and hot pressing, as compared to the crack lengths seen in pure B(4)C ceramics prepared by hot pressing without rolling. X-ray diffraction analysis confirmed that no texture has been formed during the rolling and hot pressing of B(4)C ceramics.
