Experimental Study of the Thermal Expansion of Yttria Stabilized Zirconia Ceramics
The thermal expansion behavior of zirconia ceramics from a given powder type can be "tailored" within limits by varying the chemical composition and processing variables. This provides some physical property selection capability for engineering applications. The chemical history of the powders that are used in the ceramic fabrication processes are significant. It should be expected that the physical and thermal properties will not necessarily be the same for materials from different precursors even though their chemical composition and ceramic fabrication parameters are the same.
