Summary

One of the major problems in the use of ceramics as components of turbochargers, gas turbines, diesel engines, and other heat engine applications is the joining of ceramics to metals. A new, aduanced process for achieving strong bonds which utilizes ceramic surface modification, and a high strength direct bonding of metal coating to ceramic is discussed in this paper. Also discussed are the requirements of braze materials for a successful bond and the engineering design of a successful attachment. The tensile and fatigue tests conducted to verify the bonds are discussed. The tests were conducted on a simulated turbocharger rotor to shaft attachment show good results at temperatures as high as 650°C
