S8: 6th International Symposium on Advanced Processing and Manufacturing Technologies for Structural and Multifunctional Materials and Systems (APMT) in honor of Professor R. Judd Diefendorf


ICACC'12

Preliminary Program – Symposium 8


The properties and performance of structural and multifunctional materials largely depend on their processing and manufacturing routes. Manufacturing processes carefully designed with sufficient understanding of forming/sintering behaviors lead to reliable performance of components and products of large size and complex shapes. On the other hand, recently developed new processing and fabrication techniques of ceramic materials and systems give us unique properties which cannot be achieved from the conventional routes. The aim of this international symposium is to discuss global advances in the research and development of advanced processing and manufacturing technologies for a wide variety of fiber reinforced and particulate composites, non-oxide and oxide based structural ceramics, and multifunctional materials, as well as their components and devices. Current advances and state-of-theart in various eco-friendly processing approaches will be covered. Advances in various processing and manufacturing technologies for fine scale MLCCs and transparent or electronic ceramic devices will also be presented. This international symposium is being held in honor of Professor R. Judd Diefendorf, Clemson Univ., USA, recognizing his outstanding contributions to science and technology of advanced ceramic fibers, carbon-carbon, and ceramic matrix composites and his tireless efforts in promoting their wide scale industrial applications.
