Research on Ceramic/Steel Connection Using a Single Interlayer Method

The connection of ceramics and metals together can combine the high wear resistance and corrosion resistance of ceramics and the ductility and toughness of metals to form structural parts with metallic and non-metallic properties, and the practical application value of ceramic/metal composite structural parts is much greater than that of ceramics or metals as individual materials. Due to the large difference between the coefficient of thermal expansion of ceramics and metals, the residual thermal stresses generated during the connection will damage the integrity of the joint, and the single-layer brazing method can not only realize the connection between ceramics and metals, but also alleviate the damage to the ceramics caused by residual thermal stresses. However, most of the technologies involving such additions are still in the laboratory stage and are not yet mature. The addition of a single layer of metal can be used as a thermal stress relief layer. Types of thermal stress relief layers include monolayers, composite interlayers, porous material interlayers, gradient-structured interlayers, and composite filler metals. This study mainly summarizes the research on adding monolayer metal as thermal stress relief layer in recent years and the influence of process parameters on the thickness of reaction layer of joints, which in turn affects the mechanical properties of joints, and it is an important factor to ensure the good performance of joints.
