|Nonmember – $765||Course plus Membership – $785|
Engineers, scientists, students, technicians and managers who are interested in the mechanical properties of glasses and ceramics, testing procedures and the meaning of testing results.
This two-day course covers the following topics:
- Mechanical properties of ceramics and glasses for elastic properties, strength measurements, fracture parameters and indentation hardness
- Fundamentals of properties for each topical area
- Relate properties to structure and crystal chemistry of the materials
- Standard test methods
Students will learn the fundamentals of each specific topic and be exposed to how the structures of ceramics and glasses determine those properties. Students will become acquainted with the standard test methods for the listed mechanical properties and be able to complete those tests, understanding the results. (Continuous fiber ceramic matrix composites are not included.) They will learn how the results of some tests may be used to design with ceramics and glasses, as well as learn about post-mortem analyzes of failures. Students will gain a basic understanding of the mechanical properties of ceramics and their measurement.
A modest technical background and some familiarity with ceramics and glass will be helpful for the student. However, the course is intended for a broad spectrum of candidates that wish to learn about the mechanical properties of ceramics and glasses.
Information packets including selected chapters from the Wachtman and Green textbooks, journal review papers, and case studies will be provided.
Course Includes: Continental breakfast, lunch and breaks on both days. Course notes and papers from various sources will also be provided.
