Abstract


This chapter examines compression strength enhancement through residual stresses caused by a different coefficient of thermal expansion. The sintering shrinkage and thermal expansion coefficient where determined by the analysis of bending bars which were produced by slip casting. Due to high sintering temperatures, the alumina foam may suffer from grain growth and decreasing of mechanical properties is expected. MgO was not used as sintering additive for alumina due to fact that it causes grain growth of the mullite, promotes the formation of additional unwanted phases and could change the coefficient of thermal expansion. The increase of the mechanical strength and the behaviour of the different pore size caused by two effects. The intended reason is the formation of a mullite layer on the outside of the alumina struts. The increase of more than 170% in compression strength shows the big influence of the induced residual stress. The increase in mechanical strength realized by coating of sintered alumina foams by silica Stober particles from a TEOS solution. This silica reacts during a second sintering step with the alumina to mullite, which induces residual stresses on the surface of the struts.
