About this Symposium
Meeting Materials Science & Technology 2016
Symposium Ceramic Matrix Composites
Organizer(s) Jitendra Singh, Retired, U.S. Army Research Laboratory
Narottam P. Bansal, NASA Glenn Research Center
Jacques Luc Lamon, CNRS
Sung Choi, Naval Air Systems Command
Scope Monolithic ceramics are brittle and show catastrophic failure. In contrast, ceramic composites are strong, tough and demonstrate graceful failure under loading and show promise for many advanced applications at elevated temperatures. This symposium would bring together scientists and engineers working on various aspects of the ceramic composites to discuss and exchange the latest developments. Proceedings of the symposium will be published by The American Ceramic Society in the Ceramic Transaction series.
The target audience for this symposium will be CMC manufacturers, scientists, engineers, graduate students and technologists from the industries, national and corporate research laboratories, universities, etc.
