Numerical Simulation and Experimental Research on Superplasticity of Ceramic/Ceramic Laminated Composite
In order to investigate the superplasticity of ceramic/ceramic laminated composite under tensile stress, the superplastic deep-drawing process was simulated by FEM. The results shown that, the strain and stress conditions of laminated composite, made by ceramic with different superplastic formability, are better than that of monolithic ceramic. Consequently, the material may exhibit high superplasticity. To testify this, some experiments were carried out. Tape casting and hot-press sintering are used to fabricate Al2O3/3Y-TZP laminated composite. As-received material is deep-drawing at high temperature to research its superplasticity. The results shown that, when suitable strain rate and forming temperature were used, the as-received material has excellent superplasticity.
