Description

In recent years, there has been increasing interest in nanostructured ceramic materials because of their advanced properties. The superplasticity; improved strength and toughness, higher densification rate and low sintering temperature are observed in these materials[1–4]. The sintering speed vsintering of ceramic is related to the grain size d by the expression of vsin ting ∝d-4 [2]. By adding the nano-particles of Al2O3 to conventional Al2O3, the strength, fracture toughness and thermal resistance of Al2O3 ceramic can increase[5]. Up to now, only a few researchers[6,7] have concerned about the specific heat and thermal expansion of nano- ceramics, and no report about thermal diffusivity of nano-composite has been found in literature. However, characterizations of thermal diffusivity of nanocomposite ceramics are very important for designing and preparing this kind of new materials.

Investigation of Thermal Diffusivity for Nano-Phase Composite Ceramics
