Symposium 7

Advanced Structural Ceramics and CMCs for Ultra Extreme Environments

Advanced structural ceramics and ceramic matrix composites are enabling materials for applications that involve extreme environments such as those associated with nuclear power generation, turbine engines, hypersonic flight, high speed machining, etc. During their service in the demanding environment, some of the critical challenges for the ceramics and composites have to be met, e.g. thermal/chemical stability, complex shape forming, thermal shock resistance, radiation tolerance and oxidation/ablation resistance, etc. Extreme environments and challenging applications of these ceramics and composites have also necessitated new approaches in terms of processing, manufacturing and characterization. This symposium solicits abstracts related to the diverse aspects of structural ceramics and composites for extreme environments, such as powder synthesis, processing, structure-property relationships, thermal and mechanical properties, oxidation resistance, machining and joining, both from fundamental and application-oriented perspectives. It will provide a unique platform for the specialists from all over the world on ceramics and composites to share their knowledges and demands with each other.
