A performance advantage is expected when the rotors of turbochargers are made out of ceramics. In order to qualify as commercially produced engine components, ceramic rotors must demonstrate confirmed reliability because the operation conditions are severe and the behavior of ceramic components under such conditions is not well understood. By the progress of related technologies such as designing, shape-forming, and ceramics-to-metal joining, ceramic rotors having high enough reliability levels as confirmed by NDE methods are produced.
