Symposium 1

Mechanical Behavior and Performance of Ceramics & Composites

 

 

Structural ceramics and composites are finding applications in areas including energy generation, aerospace, automotive, and microelectronics. Long-term reliability is key in their ultimate use for a specific application. Correlations between processing and service conditions/environment to failure of ceramics by fracture, fatigue, or deformation are important aspects. Severe environments and challenging applications of ceramic materials have necessitated new approaches for characterization. This symposium will focus on the diverse aspects of mechanical behavior of ceramics and composites and their correlations to component performance and reliability.

Symposium 3
7th International Symposium on Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC): Materials, Science, and Technology

Recent progress in the SOFC systems development and demonstration range from portable power to automotive auxiliary power. Large research effort continues towards the development of coal based stationary power systems to logistic fuel operated silent power systems. SOFC technology advantages in terms of obtaining high electrical efficiency, lower emissions (green house gas, NOx, VOC and particulate), utilization of liquid and gaseous hydrocarbon fuels and configurability to engineer products for stationary, mobile and defense applications are well known. R&D, products engineering and cost effective manufacturing development continues in North America, Europe, and Asia under the sponsorship of both private industries and government agencies. Although significant progress has been made in the areas of cell and stack materials identification, component fabrication, stack and systems design and simulation, fuel processing and systems operation on a wide variety of liquid and gaseous hydrocarbons, technology development continues towards the identification of bulk and interfacial modifications for performance enhancement, degradation minimization and cost reduction at both materials and process levels. Significant challenges exist in the areas of stacking cells, thermal management, and BOP component development at both sub-kWe and large multi kWe levels.

 

The primary purpose of this symposium will be to provide an international forum for scientists and engineers from these various sectors to present recent technical progress, and to exchange ideas and information, on various aspects of solid oxide fuel cells. The participants will gather state-of-the-art knowledge in the fields of SOFC component materials, processing, cell/stack fabrication and design, electrochemical performance and performance stability, bulk, interface and surface interactions, microstructural and interface engineering, computational simulation and modeling, test procedures and performance analysis, gaseous and liquid fuel processing, etc.

Symposium 10
Thermal Management Materials and Technologies

Due to increased performance in a wide range of engineered products ranging from computer processors to advanced aerospace vehicles, there is a critical need for improved thermal management systems for transferring heat. The required enhancements include increased thermal conductivity, increased surface area, reduced weight/volume, as well as operability in harsh environments (e.g., durability under high flow rates, vibrations, stress, elevated temperatures, and oxidative environments). For example, improved thermal management is needed to increase the power density of electronics and more effectively cool electronic enclosures that are envisioned for future aircraft, spacecraft and surface ships. Typically, heat exchangers must increase in size in order to more effectively dissipate any increased heat loads. This is impossible in many cases, thus new materials and concepts for heat exchanger cores/systems are required. Another high profile application involves thermal protection systems (TPS) for aerospace vehicles (e.g., the reinforced carbon composite leading edge of the Space Shuttle). Future TPS systems will include a systematic approach where a temperature resistant, durable exterior composite skin is coupled with a combination of conductive and insulating core materials both of which will need to be capable of withstanding extreme environments.

 

The aim of this symposium is to discuss and highlight new materials and the associated technologies related to thermal management. Examples of these new enabling technologies include advanced materials such as high conductivity/large surface area core materials (e.g., graphite foams); light weight ultra-high conductivity sheet materials that perform structurally (e.g., 2D carbon/carbon or ceramic composites) or as heat sinks/spreaders (e.g., natural graphite/epoxy materials); insulating core materials (e.g., ceramic aerogels); and lastly, a slew of technologies that are required for system implementation.

 

 

Proposed Symposium Topics:

  • Design, Development, and Testing of Aerospace Thermal Protection Systems (TPS)
  • Advanced Composites for Thermal Protection Systems (e.g., Carbon/Carbon and Ceramic Matrix Composites, Ablative Materials, etc.)
  • Harsh Environment, Light Weight Insulating Materials (Aerogels, Foams, etc.)
  • Light Weight, High Conductivity Materials for Thermal Management (Graphite and Diamond, Carbon and Metallic Foams, C/C and CNT composites, Al/SiC, BeO, Cu-based Systems, etc.)
  • Design, Development, and Testing of Advanced Heat Exchangers, Recuperators, etc.
  • Bonding and Integration Technologies, Thermal Contact Materials
  • Nondestructive Evaluation, Quality Assessment, Structural Health Monitoring, Sensors, etc.

Geopolymers and Other Inorganic Polymers

Geopolymers are a class of totally inorganic, alumino- silicate based ceramics that are charge balanced by group I oxides (e.g., Na, K, Rb, Cs). They are made under relatively ambient conditions of temperature and pressure into near-net dimension bodies, which can subsequently be converted to crystalline or glass-ceramic materials. They have some unique microstructures and properties, and a large variety of low to high tech potential applications. They are environmentally friendly and require low energy to make. This focused session also welcomes papers on other inorganic polymer analogues exhibiting similar behavior.

Focused Session 4

Nanolaminated Ternary Carbides and Nitrides (MAX Phases)

This focused session will bring together researchers and engineers to present the latest advances in synthesis, modeling, characterization and application of MAX phases – a class of ternary carbides and nitrides with nanolaminated structure and general formula Mn+1AXn (where M is an early transition metal, A is an A-group element from IIIA to VIA, X is either C or N, and n=1, 2, 3 …). The MAX phases have attracted recently a lot of attention because they possess unique combination of metallic- and ceramic-like properties. These carbides and nitrides exhibit high strength and stiffness even at high temperatures, good resistance to thermal shocks and oxidation, high thermal and electrical conductivities as well as high damage tolerance. They are also readily machinable. It is expected that the applications of this important class of ternary carbides may expand to different areas such as high-temperature structural, biomedical, and tribological applications.

 

 

Proposed Symposium Topics:

  • Processing of MAX phases and their composites;
  • Microstructural characterization of MAX phases;
