Paper Abstract

The aim of this study is to investigate thermo-mechanical response of ZrO2/Ti functionally graded materials (FGMs) fabricated by spark plasma sintering (SPS) based on a mean-field micromechanics model, which takes account of micro-scale stress relaxation due to interfacial diffusion between ceramic and metal phases as well as creep of both phases. A resistance to cyclic thermal shock loadings of FGMs with different compositional gradation patterns including Ti-rich, linear and ZrO2-rich gradation patterns has been investigated. The results demonstrate that Ti-rich FGMs show superior properties among the tested FGM samples. Mean-field micromechanics-based examinations reveal that the range and ratio of thermal stresses in ZrO2 surface layers in FGMs can affect cyclic thermal shock fracture behaviour but not mean thermal stresses.
