Abstract

China has been following the research and development on advanced structural ceramics and ceramic engines for more than a decade. A National Project entitled “Advanced Structural Ceramics and Adiabatic Diesel Engine” was formulated in 1986. The principle program areas of this project are ceramic powder synthesis, material design and material processing, property and microstructure study, machining and joining, nondestructive evaluation, internal combustion engine component fabrication and low heat rejection diesel engine technology. The present paper is a short survey of what has been going on during the past 4 years.
