Preparation of nanocrystalline ceramic materials made from zirconia oxide
Vlček, Ondřej ; Prajzler, Vladimír (referee) ; Šťastný, Přemysl (advisor)
Bachelor thesis is focused on preparation of nanocrystalline stabilized zirconia ceramics. The theoretical part is dedicated to zirconia ceramics. Theoretical part describes and unveil the transformation-induced toughening mechanism in partially stabilized zirconia ceramics, the processing routes of these ceramic materials and their utilization. The research part describes preparation of yttria partially stabilized nanocrystalline zirconia ceramics by slip casting method.
The microstructure evaluation of advanced oxide ceramics during fast sintering
Prajzler, Vladimír ; Chlup, Zdeněk (referee) ; Maca, Karel (advisor)
The diploma thesis deals with influence of fast pressure-less sintering on the microstructure of advanced ceramic materials, namely -Al2O3 and tetragonal ZrO2 (doped by 3 mol% Y2O3) with particle sizes ranging from 60 nm to 270 nm. Fast and controlled heating rate was enabled by utilization of the special superkanthal furnace with moving sample holder. Defect-free bulk and dense samples were prepared using heating rates in order of 100-200 °C/min. Higher densities reached the samples pressed by higher pressures; the specimens with densities higher than 99 % t.d. were prepared within tens of minutes for alumina as well as for zirconia with very low thermal conductivity. Different behavior was observed only for material TZ-3Y, which exhibited core-shell structure with dense surface and porous centre after sintering at heating rates higher than 10 °C/min. It was shown in this work that such behavior was not primarily caused by the high thermal gradient resulting from high heating rates. Its creation was probably caused by chlorine impurities. The mechanism of desintering of these samples was described and eliminated by calcination of the samples at 1000 °C for 10 hours prior to fast sintering at 1500 °C, so even this material could be fast sintered up to 99.9 % theoretical density.
Fast sintering of advanced ceramic materials
Prajzler, Vladimír ; Salamon, David (referee) ; Maca, Karel (advisor)
The bachelor thesis is dealing with fast sintering of advanced ceramic materials, such as tetragonal zirconia and alumina in conventional resistance furnace. This approach is made possible by special superkanthal furnace, which is capable to reach a heating rate of 200 °C/min. Samples obtained through fast sintering reached relative density higher than 93% for zirkonia and 97% for alumina, without forming any cracks in samples. Achieved relative density in the case of tetragonal zirconia was higher for samples with larger pores in the green body. This behavior is different of conventional sintering and leads to considerations of heat transfer mainly by radiation.
