New facets for the role of defects in ceramics

16

Saremi, R. Gao, A. Dasgupta, and L.W. Martin

Armed with advances in our ability to synthesize, characterize, and model materials, it may be time to redefine the negative connotation surrounding defects in ceramic materials. But can defects really shine as the “good guys” in materials science?


Innovative concretes provide the ultimate solution for rising construction costs and environmental footprint

24

Rouzbeh Shahsavari and Sung Hoon Hwang

Additive methods, nanostructure control, computational modelling, self-healing additives, and renewable byproduct raw materials will help cement scientists engineer stronger and more durable concretes—with less global societal cost.
