Fabrication of ZrO2-SUS Functionally Graded Materials by Slip Casting
TZP/SUS304 functionally graded material (FGM) was developed by slip casting. Microscopic observations demonstrated that the chemical composition and microstructure of TZP/SUS FGM distributed gradually in stepwise way, eliminating the macroscopic ceramic/metal interface occurred in traditional ceramic/metal joint. Each interface of layers connected well without evident defects, and the mechanical properties of TZP/SUS system strongly depended on constitutional variation.
