|About this Symposium
||2017 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition
||Energy Materials 2017: Materials for Energy Conversion with Emphasis on SOFC
||Chinese Society for Metals
Kyle S. Brinkman, Clemson University
Teruhisa Horita, AIST
Minfang Han, China University of Mining and Technology, Beijing
||Scope: Functional ceramic materials play an essential role in a number of energy storage and conversion systems including
1. Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC),
Themes: These symposium topics include, but not limited to, experiments and modeling of the above-mentioned systems including,
1. Durability of fuel cell and stack materials
2. Thermal-Chemical-mechanical stresses/expansion
4. Study of thermo-mechanical degradation mechanisms.
5. Effect of microstructure evolution on the properties and efficiency.
6. Role of grain boundary density, grain size, orientation and grain growth.
7. Advances in the characterization and modeling techniques.
The intent is to provide a forum for researchers from national laboratories, universities, and industry to discuss current understanding of materials science issues in SOFC technology processes and accelerate the development and acceptance of innovative materials and test techniques for clean energy technology.
||Planned: Stand-alone book in which only your symposium’s papers would appear (indicate title in comments section below)
