CTT readers’ top 10 posts of the year

By / December 31, 2012

What did our readers think were our top stories of the year? Rather than do an unscientific poll, we combed through our Google Analytics report and came up with the following. #1—Healing glass fibers now available for pet and animal treatments While the our original story focused on a case study of human patients with…

Hot stuff: Measuring thermophysical properties at very high temperatures

By Eileen De Guire / April 17, 2012

Calvet-type high-temperature oxide melt solution calorimeter and drop solution experiment. Credit: JACerS; Wiley. There is some pretty interesting work underway on ceramic materials for ultra-high temperature applications. Service temperatures of more than 1,500°C requires the use of ceramic materials rather than refractory alloys. Development of these ceramics is driven mostly by aerospace applications, such as…
