Chapter Outline:

Applications and Processing of Ceramics

Chapter 13:Applications and Processing of Ceramics

  • Short review of glass/ceramics applications and processing (13.1-13.3,13.8,13.10)
slide2

Formation and processing of Ceramics

  • Ceramic materials have relatively high melting temperature and are brittle  strain hardening cannot be applied
  • Some ceramics formed by powder pressing. involve drying and firing,…

Sintering: powder pressing + firing below melting T

  • Cements formed from a fluid paste that hardens by chemical reactions
  • Glasses produced by complete melting of raw ingredients
slide3

Applications of Ceramics

  • Compressive strength is typically tentimestensile strength.
  • Transparency to light optical applications (windows, photographic cameras, telescopes, etc)
  • Good thermal insulation ovens, exterior tiles of the Shuttle orbiter, etc.
  • Good electrical isolation used to support conductors in electrical and electronic applications.
  • Good chemical inertness applications in reactive environments.

Silicate Glasses

Non-crystalline silicates (SiO2) containing other oxides (CaO, NaO2, K2O, Al2O3)

Containers, windows, lenses, fiberglass, etc.

Example:

Container/window glasses contain

~ 30 wt% oxides (CaO, Na2O)

whose cations are incorporated within SiO4 network: network modifiers.

Quartz sand + soda ash or limestone

slide5

Properties of Glasses (I)

  • Solidification is gradual, through a viscous stage (viscosity increasing with decreasing T) without a clear melting temperature
  • Specific volume (1/density) does not have abrupt transition at fixed temperature. Shows a change in slope at the glass-transition temperature
slide6

Viscosity (from Chapter 12)

Viscosity: a measure of non-crystalline (glass or liquid) material’s resistance to deformation

High-viscosity fluids resist flow;

low-viscosity fluids flow easily.

Viscosity: How readily a moving layer of fluid drags adjacent layers along with it.

Units are Pa-s: Poises (P) 1 P = 0.1 Pa-s

Viscosity of water at room temp is ~ 10-3 P

Viscosity of typical glass at room temp >> 1016 P

slide7

Properties of Glasses (II)

  • Important temperatures(viscosity) in glass
    • Melting point: viscosity = 100 P, below this viscosity (higher T) glass is liquid
    • Working point: viscosity = 104 P, glass is easily deformed
    • Softening point: viscosity = 4107 P, maximum T at which a glass piece maintains shape for a long time
    • Annealing point: viscosity = 1013 P, relax internal stresses (diffusion)
    • Strain point: viscosity = 3x1014 P, above this viscosity, fracture occurs before plastic deformation
    • Glass forming operations occur between softening and working points
slide8

Properties of Glasses (II)

Important temperatures in glasses

can be defined by viscosity

slide9

Heat treatment of Glasses

Annealing: elevate temperature to remove thermal stresses resulting from inhomogeneous temperatures during cooling (similar to annealing of metals)

Tempering:heating glass above glass transition temperature but below softening point; then quench in an air jet or oil bath.

The interior: cools later than outside, tries to contract while in a plastic state after exterior has already become rigid. Causes residual compressive stresses on surface and tensile stresses inside.

In fracture: crack has to overcome residual compressive stress, making tempered glass less susceptible to fracture. Used in automobile windshields, glass doors, eyeglass lenses, etc.

Summary

Make sure you understand language and concepts:

  • Glass tempering
  • Glass transition temperature
  • Melting point (glass)
