Abstract:

A MAJOR OBSTACLE EXISTS FOR JOINING CERAMIC COMPONENTS TO METAL STRUCTURAL COMPONENTS IN DIESEL ENGINES. TO BRIDGE THE DISPARITIES BETWEEN CERAMIC AND METAL COMPONENTS, A WHISKER-REINFORCED CERMET WILL BE DEVELOPED. THE WHISKER WILL BE THE SAME AS THE CERAMIC COMPONENT, AND A CERMET COMPOSITION WILL BE GRADED FROM THE CERAMIC COMPOSITION TO THE METAL COMPOSITION. A STATISTICAL EXPERIMENT INVESTIGATION WILL BE CONDUCTED TO DEVELOP CERMET COMPOSITION GRADATION AND WHISKER DENSITY. INDIVIDUAL COMPOSITIONAL LAYER PROPERTIES WILL BE MODELED AND UTILIZED TO DESIGN THE OVERALL CERMET COMPOSITE TO OPTIMIZE BRIDGING THE DISPARITIES BETWEEN THE CERAMIC AND METAL COMPONENTS. THE WHISKER-REINFORCED CERMET PROPERTIES WILL BE CHARACTERIZED TO ESTABLISH PROPERTIES FOR PRODUCING TEST PIECES FOR THERMAL CYCLING UNDER SIMULATED CONDITIONS AND FOR SUBSEQUENT ENGINE STAND TESTING.
