Joining of Advanced Ceramics, Glasses and Composites at Politecnico di Torino, Italy
An overview of the last 16 years of activity on joining of advanced ceramics, glasses and ceramic matrix composites at Politecnico di Torino (Italy) will be presented. Results on thermal assisted direct bonding (TADB) of glasses for lab-on-chip devices, C/C composites to Cu-alloys for nuclear fusion components (ITER), SiC and SiC/SiC joints for nuclear components (fusion and fission), glass joining of foam glass, C/C joints for aerospace applications, ceramics to stainless steels for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC), will be shown. Mechanical tests on joined components will be discussed, in particular, the results of an experimental campaign on carbon/carbon and ceramic joints tested in pure and apparent shear by nine different configurations.
