2019 DECEMBER 10-14 YOKOHAMA SYMPOSIA

Symposium

Hard and Tough Ceramics

Scope

The symposium will cover a series of studies on mechanical properties of ceramics including diamond related materials and very hard borides, carbides, and nitrides. Studies on the following topics are very welcome to be presented: synthesis and fabrication of new hard and tough materials; novel techniques of mechanical testing to measure hardness, toughness, and strength of materials including micro- and nano-scale testing; ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) including studies on thermal and environmental barrier coatings (TEBCs); strong and tough bioinspired ceramics including ceramics with self-organized multi-scale structure. The purpose of this symposium is the sharing of information between researchers who are interested in enhancing mechanical properties of ceramics.
