Mechanical Properties and Performance of Engineering Ceramics and Composites V, Volume 31, Issue 2



This volume is a compilation of papers presented in the Mechanical Behavior and Performance of Ceramics & Composites symposium during the 34th International Conference & Exposition on Advanced Ceramics and Composites (ICACC) held January 24-29, 2010, in Daytona Beach, Florida. 

The Mechanical Behavior and Performance of Ceramics & Composites symposium was one of the largest symposia in terms of the number (>100) of presentations at the ICACC’10.  This symposium covered wide ranging and cutting-edge topics on mechanical properties and reliability of ceramics and composites and their correlations to processing, microstructure, and environmental effects. Symposium topics included:

• Ceramics and composites for engine applications
• Design and life prediction methodologies
• Environmental effects on mechanical properties
• Mechanical behavior of porous ceramics
• Ultra high temperature ceramics
• Ternary compounds
• Mechanics & characterization of nanomaterials and devices
• Novel test methods and equipment
• Processing - microstructure - mechanical properties correlations
• Ceramics & composites joining and testing
• NDE of ceramic components
