During the last few decades, remarkable advances have been achieved inimproving the mechanical behaviour of ceramic materials. Recently, newstrategies have emerged aiming to achieve “flaw tolerant” materials by designingspecial microstructures that improve the toughness of ceramics. One of the verypromising approaches for fabrication of flaw tolerant ceramics is the laminationof different kinds of ceramics.
