S1-Mechanical Behavior and Performance of Ceramics & Composites

Register for ICACC'15


Ceramics and composites have applications in areas including energy generation, environment, space, transportation, and microelectronics. Long-term mechanical reliability is a key issue in their ultimate use for a specific application. Correlations between processing and service conditions/environment to failure of ceramics and composites by fracture, fatigue, thermal shock, or deformation are key aspects. Extreme environments and challenging applications of ceramic materials have necessitated new approaches for characterization. This symposium solicits abstracts related to the diverse aspects of mechanical behavior of ceramics and composites and their correlations to processing and component performance and reliability.
