    I don't know what you're getting at here, but ceramics are often rather brittle, thus making them prone to damage from impact loading.

    .... yeah, and as such property wise typically rate - independent but can react 'violently' to impact etc. highspeed/highrate events.

    Ceramics tend to make this really cool "PPPFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFTTTTTTTT" sound when they fail at high rotational speeds.

    Would that be the sound of the parts cutting through the air as they go past your ears :eek:
