Optimization of the Hot Pressing Parameters of Nanocomposite Ceramic Tool and Die Materials: I. with BP Neural Network Method
In this paper, back propagation neural network was used in the optimum design of the hot pressing parameters of an advanced ZrO2/TiB2/Al2O3 nanocomposite ceramic tool and die material. The BP algorithm could set up the relationship well between the hot pressing parameters and mechanical property of nanocomposite ceramic tool and die materials. After analyzed the predicted results, the best predicted results were the sintering temperature was 1420°C and the holding time was 60min. Under these hot pressing parameters, the best flexural strength and the best fracture toughness of the material could be obtained.
