T4S8: Ceramic Integration Technologies for Energy and Environmental Applications

Register for 11th CMCEE


Ceramic technologies for sustainable development


 Despite having excellent properties, ceramics and ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) are still much less used than metals and polymers for energy and environmental applications, such as energy production systems (fuel cells, thermoelectrics, photovoltaics, nuclear systems, wind, and geothermal), energy storage and distribution (batteries, phase changing materials), energy conservation and efficiency (gas turbines, heat exchangers), and environmental systems (advanced sensors, filters, and membranes). It is impossible to weld or rivet ceramics and CMCs together or to other materials. However, ceramics and CMCs integration to metals and to other materials is increasingly considered an enabling technology to obtain more efficient components, devices, and structures for energy production and environment. Together with the development of reliable joining materials and technologies, the availability of widely accepted testing methods for joined ceramics and CMCs can also widen their use.


Proposed session topics:

  • Joining of ceramics and CMCs
  • Joining of ceramics and CMCs to metals
  • Mechanical tests of joined ceramics and CMCs
  • Joining at the nano- and microscales
  • Design and modeling of joints and interfaces
  • Joining applications and enabled components, and their evaluation in relevant operating conditions
