Investigation by neutron diffraction of texture induced by the cooling process of zirconia refractories

Abstract : New fused cast refractories with a high content of zirconia have been developed to face corrosion in glass furnaces. The controlled cooling process is responsible for thermal gradients. So, thermal mismatches appear between core and edge zones of blocks. Besides, the multiphasic nature of ZrO2 based refractories is associated to thermal mismatches during cooling. Finally, the expansive transformation of ZrO2 can lead to stress generation.This paper is an application of neutron diffraction to study texture generated during the cooling process of zirconia based materials. In fact, it is shown that ZrO2 crystallographic variants have particular crystallographic texture regarding the main direction of the thermal gradient in the block. It was hypothesized that a selection of crystallographic variants could be done depending on the field stress. Tensile-compressive tests at high temperature have been done, to reproduce stress environment during the transformation of zirconia.
