Abstract: This study presents a fabrication process via experimental observations for curved porous multi-layer structures with a single step, co-sintering operation. Active monitoring the shrinkage behaviour of each porous layer during the co-sintering process leads to minimise mismatched stresses along with avoidance of severe warping and cracking. During co-sintering, in-plane stresses are developed in each layer due to differing shrinkage behaviours between layers. Analysis of curvature evolution using in-situ monitoring of the structure was performed in the design of a curved multi-layer structure via the co-sintering process. Materials used are NiO/CGO for anode; CGO for electrolyte; and LSCF for cathode. These materials are tape-casted with 207m thickness and stacked to form bi- and triple-layer structures by hot pressing. Bi-layers, consisting of NiO/CGO-CGO and CGO-LSCF, were co-sintered up to 1200°C. The maximum sintering mismatched stress was calculated at the interface of bi-layer structure. In-situ observation, to monitor the shrinkage of each material and the curvature evolution of the bi- and triple-layer structures, was performed using a long focus microscope (Infinity K-2). Thereby, viscosity, shrinkage rate of each material and curvature rate were calculated to determine the mismatched stresses. The monitored results contributed to development of novel design of curved 3D multi-layer structures during co-sintering.
