||Surface coatings and surface modifications are becoming an integral part of the design and application for advanced materials. Protecting the material’s surface from various elements during service is required to realize the full potential and to achieve the optimum system level functionality from engineering materials, such as ceramics, metals, composites, and biomaterials. Surface coatings enhance the material performance in service by providing protection from extreme environments such as high temperature, high stress, and oxidizing, corrosive, and erosive environments. Thermal and environmental barrier coatings are an enabling technology for nickel-based superalloy and ceramic matrix composite (CMC) turbine hot section components. They are essential in extending the component life and increasing the gas turbine efficiency. Advanced tribological coatings are needed to improve the life of turbine components in erosive environments. Coatings enhance functionality of biomedical implants by stimulating tissue growth. Coating processing methods, including thermal spray, plasma spray, suspension plasma spray, cold spray, aerosol deposition, electron beam-physical vapor deposition (EB-PVD), chemical vapor deposition (CVD),and solution-based processes, are of high interest for these coatings. Next generation coatings and coating processes are also of interest. This symposium will emphasize chemistry, design, processing, properties, modeling, lifing, coating characterization, non-destructive evaluation, and failure prevention and life-cycle assessment of coatings and surface modifications for advanced materials.This symposium is sponsored by the ACerS Engineering Ceramics Division
