S9-Porous Ceramics: Novel Developments and Applications

Register for ICACC'15


Porous materials are utilized in many applications including but not limited to thermal insulation, catalysts, catalyst supports, filters, adsorbers and sensors. This symposium aims to bring together the technical community to share recent advances in the formation, characterization, properties and modeling of porous ceramic, carbon, glass and glass-ceramic components for any application. These materials contain pore sizes from the nanometers to millimeters, and can have textured to random porosity or hierarchical porosity and be based on various pore architectures, such as foams, honeycombs, fiber networks, bio-inspired structures. This symposium will be the ideal showcase for the research activities of many groups involved in the development and use of porous materials including but not limited to the areas of ceramics, chemistry, mechanics, fluid dynamics, modeling and simulation and application engineering.
