Thematic session: Joining and Integration of Ceramics and Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC)

Posted by on Gen 10, 2024 in News | 0 comments

Ceramics and Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC) are now being used as effective and reliable materials with excellent high temperature resistance coupled to low density. Some civilian aircraft engines are now equipped with CMC parts; new generation nuclear plants are now working on CMC based accident tolerant fuels to increase safety; high performance car brakes are based on CMC. However, several improvement in their preparation, characterization, mechanical testing and joining/integration processes are still under investigation.
Potential topics include: mechanical properties modelling and characterization of ceramics and CMC, novel applications of CMC in extreme environment, advanced integration/joining of CMC, design of CMC joined components, etc…
