Thermal Conductivity of the New Candidate Materials for Thermal Barrier Coatings


Article Preview

Rare-earth zirconate ceramics (Gd2Zr2O7, Sm2Zr2O7, Nd2Zr2O7, Dy2Zr2O7, Er2Zr2O7 and Yb2Zr2O7) were successfully prepared by pressureless sintering at 1550oC for 10 hours. The thermal conductivities of these ceramics were measured and the results indicated that the thermal conductivities of rare-earth zirconates were much lower than that of YSZ in the temperature range 20-800oC.
