Honoring the ACerS Awards Class of 2018

17

The Society announces awards that will be presented at the Awards Banquet of the 120thAnnual Meeting in October to recognize significant contributions to the engineered ceramic and glass field by members and corporations.

 

Keramos powers a bright future with its deep history

26

Kevin Fox

A revitalized Keramos introduces students at all levels to the ceramic and glass engineering profession.


From powder to optical devices: Using CAPAD to create functional transparent ceramics

29

Y. Kodera, A. D. Dupuy, E. H. Penilla, and J. E. Garay

Current-activated pressure-assisted sintering shows promise for densifying novel, transparent optical oxides.


Sintering of nanopowders—The dream not (or partially) coming true

32

Ricardo H. R. Castro

Surface reactivity of nanopowders complicates sintering to dense nanoscale grain structure.


Indentation fracture toughness: A review and application

34

Costandino Relias and Doug Ngai

Vickers indentation eliminates the need for standardized samples to determine fracture toughness of brittle materials. The key is to select the correct system of equations to calculate fracture toughness from crack morphology.
