Abstract
Hardmetal industry is continuously seeking for high-performance products at reduced costs. In addition, it is strongly struggled by the high and volatile prices of raw materials. At this juncture, producers and end-users are deeply concerned in increasing the performance and enhancing service-life and reliability of engineering products, and replacing current constituents by alternative and less critical materials. Premature and unexpected fracture, together with wear, is the main damage phenome...
