S2: Advanced ceramic coatings for structural, environmental, and functional applications

The growing demand for advanced materials to be used in extreme environments is the key driver for the development of protective ceramic coatings. In next generation turbine engines new lightweight structural materials such as ceramic matrix composites and intermetallics as well as advanced superalloys promise higher energy efficiency due to increasing operation temperatures. However, the synergistic attack of heat, combustion atmosphere, and CMAS-type contamination strongly affects the lifetime of the materials. Consequently, the development of new, high-performance protective coating systems minimizing thermochemical degradation of such advanced materials and components is a highly relevant R&D topic. Furthermore, protection of structural materials against oxidation, corrosion, erosion, and wear remains a key challenge in many industrial applications. The symposium addresses processing, microstructure, performance, and durability of advanced ceramic  coating systems. Advanced and new coating compositions, innovative processing, advanced characterization, and thermodynamic modeling are particularly emphasized. Material scientists and engineers from around the world are invited to present and discuss their recent advances in ceramic coating sciences and technologies.
