Flash joining of graphite with polymer derived ceramic interlayer

Conference Dates

March 10-15, 2019


High-temperature ceramics for structural applications are often characterized by poor machinability and very high melting temperature. Therefore, it is difficult to manufacture them into net-shape large components with complex geometry, with manufacturing technologies such as casting, plastic forming and machining not being viable. Therefore the development of novel joining technologies for high temperature ceramics is of considerable interest. However, ceramic joining is a challenging task because of their high melting temperature; their resistance to plastic deformation; and their brittle behavior (which can cause failure when thermal stresses are developed).
