This book provides a one-stop resource with current research on advanced ceramics. It is a collection of papers from The American Ceramic Society s 32nd International Conference on Advanced Ceramics and Composites, January 27-February 1, 2008. Topics include Processing-Microstructure-Mechanical Properties Correlations; Mechanical Performance of Ternary Compounds; Mechanical Performance of Ultra-High Temperature Ceramics; and more. Articles are logically organized to provide insight into various aspects of ceramic materials and advanced ceramics. This is a valuable, up-to-date resource for researchers working in ceramics engineering.
