Scope Advanced ceramics are attractive for next generation nuclear energy systems as they increase the operating temperature window to allow higher thermal efficiency, and exposure to variable environments. Although ceramic nuclear fuels have been widely used in current nuclear reactors, advanced energy systems call for improved materials with optimized properties. As an example, ceramic/ceramic coatings are under active research to improve/enhance structural materials’ performance. Ceramic materials also contribute to enhanced safety of nuclear systems including light water reactors due to their high temperature stability. Moreover, glass/ceramic/cement/geopolymer compounds have been applied in long-term waste disposal. Processing, properties and testing of ceramic materials need to be expanded to meet the future needs of the nuclear industry. This symposium focuses on experimental and computational studies of ceramics for nuclear energy research and applications.
