Nanoparticles lower thermal shock stress for ceramics at extreme temperatures

By Faye Oney / September 4, 2018

Researchers have succeeded in reducing heat transfer of ceramics at extreme temperatures. A simple coating of nanoparticles on a ceramic surface was all that was needed to reduce thermal shock and maintain strength of the ceramic material.

New way to determine thermal shock behavior of ceramics

By Martin Grolms / July 29, 2013

Comparison of  experimental results with simulated results to determine the thermal shock behavior of ceramic materials shows excellent agreement. Credit: Wiley Materials Views. (Editor’s note: This article was originally published in Wiley Materials Views on July 17.) Until the 1950s, the most important ceramic materials were pottery, bricks and tiles, cements and glass. Because of the remarkable…
