Audience

Engineers and scientists in industry, national laboratories, and academia involved in the research, development, and production of ceramics; professionals interested in continuing education. The course includes Sintering of Ceramics, by M. N. Rahaman.

 

Course Description

The two-day course will follow the key topics in the textbook, Sintering of Ceramics, by M. N. Rahaman (book is included with course) and will be supplemented by detailed case studies of the sintering of specific ceramics and systems. Students will develop sufficient background in the principles and practice of sintering to be able to (i) do sintering to achieve specified target microstructures, (ii) understand the difficulties encountered in practical sintering, and (iii) take practical steps to rectify the problems encountered in producing required target microstructures.

 

Learning Outcomes

Attendees will develop sufficient background in the principles and practice of sintering to be able to (i) do sintering to achieve specified target microstructures, (ii) understand the difficulties encountered in practical sintering, and (iii) take practical steps to rectify the problems encountered in producing required target microstructures.
