S2: Advanced Ceramic Coatings for Structural, Environmental and Functional Applications


This symposium will provide an open forum for researchers to discuss recent advances in ceramic coating sciences and technologies, processing, microstructure and property characterization and life prediction. Special sessions will be dedicated to advanced coating and component developments for aerospace, automotive, and energy applications. Integrated structural, environmental properties and functionality through advanced coating processing and structural design are of particular interests.

Proposed Symposium Topics

  • Thermal barrier coatings
  • Environmental barrier coatings
  • Coatings to resist wear, erosion and tribological loading
  • Protective coating and component systems for extreme environments
  • Vibration damping coatings
  • Functionally graded coatings and materials, nanostructured coating systems
  • Low temperature coating systems (especially via wet chemical synthesis)
  • Thin-film photovoltaic device systems
  • Advanced coating processing methods and modeling, testing and NDE
  • Multifunctional coating system integration and durability
  • Interface phenomena, adhesion and coating properties
  • Modeling of coating degradation and life prediction
