SYMPOSIUM 2: 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 ceramic coatings. In next generation turbine engines, new lightweight structural materials such as CMC and intermetallics as well as advanced superalloys promise higher efficiency due to increasing operation temperatures. Consequently, the development of new, high-performance protective coating systems minimizing oxidation and thermochemical degradation of such advanced materials and components is mandatory. In many industrial applications protection of structural materials against corrosion, wear, and oxidation remains a key challenge. This symposium provides an open forum for material scientists and engineers from around the world to discuss recent advances in coating sciences and technologies. Innovative processing, microstructure and property characterization, performance, and durability of advanced ceramic coating systems will be addressed. Special sessions will be dedicated to coating and component developments for aerospace, energy, and industrial applications. Integrated structural, environmental properties and functionality through advanced coating composition development, innovative processing, structural design, and modeling are particularly emphasized.

Proposed Session Topics

  • Thermal and environmental barrier coatings for next generation turbine engines
  • Coatings to resist CMAS, oxidation, corrosion, wear, and erosion
  • Advanced coating systems for extreme environments
  • Nanostructured and multifunctional coating system integration and durability
  • Advanced coating processing methods and modeling
  • Advanced testing and non-destructive evaluation methodologies
