The complex geometries required for new and novel ceramic parts require new fabrication methods such as the fugitive phase approach. This paper examines the lamination step of fugitive phase approach ceramic fabrication process. The lamination step integrates the fugitive phase with the green ceramic material. The pressing used along with the geometric layout of the fugitive phase during the lamination step creates an uneven pressure distribution in the green ceramic. This pressure distribution causes density gradients and warping in the final ceramic part. A preliminary computational model of the lamination process is modeled and the resulting stress, strain energy, and deformed shape are examined.
