Mechanical properties of fully yttria stabilized zirconia (F-YSZ) with different grain sizes were investigated using instrumented indentation. While the grain size effect on the yield strength was performed on both the coarse-grained and fine-grained F-YSZ, the grain boundary effect was studied on the coarse-grained F-YSZ by performing nanoindentation within the grains and on/near the grain boundaries. Little variations were observed on mechanical properties such as hardness and reduced modulus, interesting results were obtained on the grain boundary effect on the yielding load for the course-grained F-YSZ.
