Video of the week: Linda Jones on high temperature oxidation and corrosion of ceramics and glass

Published on April 29th, 2010 | By: pwray@ceramics.org

ACerS Fellow Linda Jones is the Hewlett Professor of Engineering
at Smith College. Through much of her career, Jones has focused on how
materials behave when exposed to oxygen and other gases under conditions
of high temperatures and high levels of vibrations, such as might be
found on the leading-edge surfaces of the Space Shuttle. Jones, who is
director of Smith’s Picker Engineering Program, explains how oxidation
occurs and how ceramics can behave differently than glass. She also
discusses how this area of work requires combining the insights from
both thermodynamics and kinetics to develop corrosion- and
oxidation-resistant materials.
