Are you an engineer, scientist, technician or student interested in the mechanical properties of glasses and ceramics, testing procedures and the meaning of testing results? If you answered yes, then you must sign up to attend this 2-day short course, hosted January 27-28 in conjunction with ICACC’11. Mechanical Properties of Ceramics and Glass will cover mechanical properties for elastic properties, strength measurements, fracture parameters and indentation hardness; property fundamentals; structure and crystal chemistry of the materials; and standard test methods.

Richard C. Bradt, professor of Materials Engineering and The Alton N. Scott Professor of Engineering at the University of Alabama and George Quinn is a Research Ceramic Engineer at NIST will teach the course.
