Symposium 11: Engineering Ceramics: Processing and Characterizations



Conventional and nanostructured engineering ceramics offer unique combinations of properties that have the potential to fulfill the demanding material needs in structural and functional applications, such as those in the aerospace, automotive, energy, engineering, environment, and microelectronics industries. Globally, significant progress has been made in the material development and manufacturing technologies pertaining to these materials. However, challenges remain with regard to increasing the degree of penetration of these materials into the marketplace. The successful entry of engineering ceramics into the marketplace depends on the consistent development of materials with improved properties, thus providing solutions for engineering conditions with special requirements. The purpose of this symposium is to provide a broader forum to scientists and engineers from around the world to present and discuss their recent advances and developments in the areas of processing, characterization, and applications of engineering ceramics.
