Al2O3-Fe Functionally Graded Materials Fabricated under Magnetic Field
This paper describes technology, which can be used to obtain ceramic-metal composites with a gradient of metal particles concentration. Graded composites, have been obtained by slip casting. The gradient of iron concentration was induced by magnetic field. Microstructures of the specimens have been investigated using a light and scanning electron microscopy. Quantitative analysis of microstructures has been carried out with the help of image analyzer. The obtained results prove the possibility to produce Al2O3-Fe functionally graded materials under the magnetic field.
