  • Patent number: 11045292
    Abstract: A zirconia sintered body is provided in which the strength between layers of powders is improved. A flexural strength of a test sample of the zirconia sintered body, measured pursuant to JISR1601, is not less than 1100 MPa. The test sample is formed by preparing a plurality of zirconia powders, each containing zirconia and a stabilizer that suppresses phase transition of zirconia, the zirconia powders differing in a composition, layering the zirconia powders to form a zirconia composition, and sintering the zirconia composition to form a zirconia sintered body. The flexural strength is measured such that a load point is positioned at a boundary of the zirconia powders, the boundary traversing the test sample of the sintered body along a direction of load application.

  • Publication number: 20200156607
    Abstract: A vehicle braking force control apparatus of the disclosure executes a slip rate reduction control to reduce a slip rate of any of wheels of a vehicle becoming equal to or greater than a predetermined slip rate threshold by automatically changing braking force applied to one or more of the wheels. The apparatus uses a first slip rate threshold as the predetermined slip rate threshold during a normal acceleration-and-deceleration control and a normal steering control. The apparatus uses a second slip rate threshold during a driving assist control. The second slip rate is set to a value smaller than the first slip rate threshold and near and smaller than the slip rate, at which a friction coefficient between the wheel and a surface of a road on which the vehicle moves is maximum.
