Joining of Si 3 N 4 Turbine Rotor and Metal Shaft 940203

The joining process of silicon nitride (S13N4) turbine rotor and steel metal shaft was investigated. The process consists of brazing procedures with multi-layer metallizing and complementary steps involving shrink fitting and non-destructive tests.In the course of the brazing steps, preliminary investigations using small specimens were conducted on the formation of a highly strengthened interface at high temperature and thermal stress reduction, and superior high temperature strength and heat cycle resistance were obtained.Rotary tests at high temperature were successfully completed using the rotor joined by this process.
