Meeting MS&T22: Materials Science & Technology
Symposium 50 Years of Characterizing Structural Ceramics and Glasses: Recognizing the Contributions of George Quinn
Presentation Title On the 3rd Edition of the NIST Guide to Fractography of Ceramics and Glasses
Author(s) George D. Quinn
On-Site Speaker (Planned) George D. Quinn
Abstract Scope Fractography is a powerful but underutilized tool for the analysis of fractured glasses and ceramics. The 1st edition of the NIST Guide was published in 2007. Its goal was to make fractographic analysis of brittle materials less an art and more an engineering practice for scientists and engineers. The 3rd edition of 2020 added new developments in our field, new equipment and techniques, and some new case studies. It expanded some topics that were glossed over (e.g., terminal crack velocities, thermal shock) in the earlier editions. The 3rd edition has 16% more content than the 2nd edition, and now there are over 1130 figures. Judicious layout adjustments were made so that the physical size of this book was only 3% larger than the 2nd edition of 2016. This presentation discusses how the Guide has evolved. A 4th edition is possible in the future.
