2015-12-28 Ukraine: The Innovative Production Technology of Reinforced Ceramic Materials for High-Temperature Applications


 The Innovative Production Technology of Reinforced Ceramic Materials for High-Temperature Applications

Description of the project offered: 
Topic: FETOPEN-01-2016-2017:FET-Open research and innovation actions
The modern manufacturing requires the progress in the creation of new materials with unique physical and mechanical properties.
In frame of the project it is proposed to develop the production technology of reinforced ceramic material based on oxygen-free refractory compounds with structure consist of ceramic matrix based on boron carbide reinforced by fiber or plate inclusions other refractory ceramic compounds and their combinations. As the basis of the process it is proposed the eutectic interaction between the components of quasi-binary multi-component systems of corresponding refractory compounds. This type of interaction is the most favorable to obtaining of maximum high-temperature mechanical properties due to the formation of the most clean and strong interfaces without the presence of an amorphous phase. It is predicted that this approach will allow to realize high values of bonding strength that are proper for ceramic materials with most covalent bond.
Synthesis of reinforced ceramics of selected systems is proposed to carry out by methods of directional solidification and spark plasma sintering. The formation of reinforced ceramic matrix will be carried out directly during synthesis of ceramic composites due to the effect of self-reinforcing. This approach allows to realize the extremely high level of mechanical characteristics through the formation of strong defect-free interfaces between the matrix based on boron carbide and reinforced inclusions based on refractory compounds formed in equilibrium or near-equilibrium conditions. Previous studies on ceramic quasi-binary systems show the high efficiency of this type of reinforcement. Thus, the strength of directionally reinforced composites based on lanthanum hexaboride reached 1500 MPa. It was also shown that the mechanical properties of such materials are kept to a temperature 1600-2000 °C.
Expected results. 
As a result of this project it is predicted to develop the production technology of heat-resistant reinforced ceramic composites with strength of 1000-1500 MPa, hardness - 35-45 GPa and fracture toughness 6-10 MPa m1/2. These properties are able to be stored in a wide temperature range. Due to the low strength-to-weight ratio obtained composites could be used as high-temperature structural materials with operating temperatures up to 2000 °C including for the manufacture of aerospace equipment operating at high thermomechanical stresses
