Both static and dynamic grain growth were studied during superplastic deformation of fine‐grained yttria‐stabilized tetragonal zirconia. It was found that significant grain growth does not take place below 1300°C. Both static and dynamic growth were found to obey a similar equation of the form D3−D30=kt, where D and D0 are the instantaneous and initial grain sizes, respectively, t is the annealing time, and k is the kinetic constant for either static or dynamic grain growth. The activation energies were approximately 580 and 520 kJ/mol for static and dynamic grain growth, respectively. Copyright © 1989, Wiley Blackwell. All rights reserved
