Abstract

A cylindrical Al 2O 3-Ni joint bonded with a 4.0 mm thick composite interlayer of 40 vol% Al 2O 3-60 vol% Ni was fabricated by powder processing, and the residual strains in the specimen were studied experimentally using neutron diffraction, X-ray diffraction, and optical fluorescence spectroscopy. Experimental measurements were compared with finite element modeling results obtained using a variety of different constitutive assumptions. The predicted residual strain distribution within the Al 2O 3 along the center of the specimen was in reasonable agreement with neutron diffraction measurements, although the magnitude of the error in the experimental measurements did not allow a distinction to be made between the various modeling assumptions examined. In contrast, the predicted peak strains within the Al 2O 3 along the specimen surface were significantly higher than those measured by X-ray diffraction or optical fluorescence spectroscopy, suggesting that strain relief occurred near the free edge during cooling. The mechanism of strain relief is believed to involve damage accumulation within the composite interlayer that was not accounted for in the constitutive models used.
