G6: Porous ceramics for advanced applications through innovative processing



Porous ceramics with various pore scales are utilized in numerous engineering applications, including filters, separators, insulation, membranes, catalytic supports, catalysts, absorbers, sensors, and lightweight structural components. This symposium will aim to bring together engineers, researchers, and scientists of porous ceramics, carbon, and glass to share recent advances in innovative processing routes, characterizations, properties, fluid dynamics, simulation, and modeling of these components. Components include those with pore sizes from nanometers to millimeters, controlled pore volume fractions, and tailored pore configurations, such as textured or random morphologies, interconnected or closed microstructures, sandwich-structured ceramic matrix composites, and hierarchical porosities. Porous materials can be based on various morphologies, including, but not limited to: foams, syntactic foams, honeycombs, fibrous, bioinspired, membranes, aerogels, and additive manufactured. Engineering applications include energy-related technologies (renewable energy, energy-efficient, energy conversion, and heat exchange and storage), environmental protection (hot gas filtration or separation, filtration of fine particle matters, catalysts, adsorption, and sensors), and lightweight structural components for aerospace. This symposium will be the ideal showcase for research activities of groups involved in processing and applications of porous materials. The symposium will also include research advancement and trends in next-generation porous materials, design, fabrication, and characterization.
