The initial deviatoric behaviour of two silicon carbide variants subject to impact have been studied using a Plate Impact technique to measure the principal stresses behind and ahead of failure fronts. Significant differences in the inelastic behaviour of the two materials have been identified. These differences are correlated with relative damage tolerance, and microstructure.
