Research on Ceramic/Steel Connection Using the Composite Interlayer Method

Ceramics are widely used in harsh environments due to their excellent mechanical properties such as hardness, high melting point and resistance to wear. However, due to their brittle nature, ceramics are difficult to process in engineering applications, which greatly limits their widespread use. Metals, on the other hand, have superior plasticity and toughness, allowing for on-demand design and shaping in practical production. Therefore, by combining the wear and corrosion resistance of ceramics with the plasticity and ductility of metals, composite structural components are able to meet the requirements for the normal performance of material properties in harsh environments. The composite sandwich method is an ideal method for joining ceramics and metals, and shows superior mechanical properties when joining ceramics and metals. The use of composite interlayers not only realizes stable ceramic/metal joints, but also effectively mitigates the damage to ceramics caused by residual thermal stresses in the weld. This paper summarizes the research progress in recent years on the application of composite sandwich method to prepare ceramic/steel joints, and describes in detail the interfacial composition and mechanical properties of ceramic/metal joints. The effects of welding time and welding temperature on the interfacial composition and mechanical properties of the joints by the composite sandwich method are summarized.
