Sign up to attend Mechanical Properties of Ceramics and Glass after ICACC’11. This January 27-28, 2011 course covers mechanical properties of ceramics and glasses for elastic; properties, strength measurements, fracture parameters and indentation hardness; fundamentals of properties for each topical area; relate properties to structure and crystal chemistry of the materials; and standard test methods.
Attendees will become acquainted with the standard test methods for the listed mechanical properties and be able to complete those tests, understanding the results. They will learn how the results of some tests may be used to design with ceramics and glasses, as well as learn about post-mortem analyzes of failures. Attendees will gain a basic understanding of the mechanical properties of ceramics and their measurement.
