Meeting Materials Science & Technology 2020
Symposium Ceramic Matrix Composites

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.

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.

Session Topics:
Oxide and Non-oxide Fibers;
Composite Interfaces and Interface Coatings; Oxide, Non-oxide, Carbon-Carbon and Glass-Ceramic Composites; In-situ and Nanocomposites; Ultrahigh Temperature Ceramics and Composites; Geopolymers; Processing and Fabrication Methods; Characterization; Mechanical Properties at Room and Elevated Temperatures; Test Methods including NDE; Environmental Effects: Oxidation, moisture, ablation; Protective Coatings; Foreign Object Damage; Design and Lifing (Stress rupture, creep, fatigue, crack growth, etc.); Micromechanical Modeling and Damage Mechanics; Component Design and Fiber Architecture; Integration/Joining; Industrial Applications
