Symposium 7: Porous Ceramics: Innovative Processing and Advanced Applications



Porous ceramics with various pore scales are utilized in many advanced engineering applications, including filters, separators, insulators, membranes, catalytic supports, catalysts, absorbers, sensors, and lightweight structural components. This symposium aims to bring together the technical community to share recent advances in the general understanding or methodologies pertaining to the forming, characterizing, modeling, and engineering of porous materials of ceramics, glass, glass-ceramics, and carbon. Porous materials can be based on various morphologies, including but not limited to foams, syntactic foams, honeycombs, fibers, bio-inspirations, membranes, aero-gels, composites, and additive manufacturing components. Engineering applications can include thermal management or energy-related technologies (renewable energy, energy saving, energy conversion, heat exchange, and storage), environmental protection (filtration, catalysis, adsorption, and sensing). The symposium is to foster knowledge sharing and networking for technological leaders within industry, national institutions, and academia involved in the processing and applications of porous materials, including but not limited to the areas of ceramics, chemistry, mechanics, fluid dynamics, modeling and simulation, and application engineering.
