Abstract:

This report summarizes the results of a one-year extension of a research program devoted to an investigation of the effect of compositional and microstructural variables on the thermal conductivitydiffusivity and thermal stress resistance of engineering ceramics. A total of six completed studies have resulted during this extension, with a seventh in preparation, as follows 1 Thermal Diffusivity of Microcracked Ceramic Materials. 2 Thermal Diffusivity and Thermal Conductivity of a Fibrous Alumina. 3 Thermal DiffusivityConductivity of Alumina with a Zirconia Dispersed Phase. 4 Effect of Crystallization on the Thermal Diffusivity of a Mica Glass-Ceramic. 5 Effect of Microcracking on the Thermal Diffusivity of Polycrystalline Aluminum Niobate. 6 Enhanced Thermal Stress Resistance of Structural Ceramics with Thermal Conductivity Gradient. 7 Effect of Crystallization on the Thermal Diffusivity of a Cordierite Glass-Ceramic.
