High-Performance Ceramics VII
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
This special volume presents the latest advances in the science and technology of high-performance ceramics. More than 600, already-excellent, contributions were further refined, using a strict peer-review process, to yield the almost 400 manuscripts included in this collection. The result is an incomparable guide to the subject-matter of the title.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: The first volume in this two-volume set describes novel processes for manufacturing high-performance ceramics and the properties of ceramic composites. Researchers from Tsinghua University present a porous yttria-stabilized zirconia ceramic made by gelcasting with high solid loading slurry, a direct ink writing assembly for producing 3D functional ceramics, and porous mullite ceramics reinforced by mullite fiber. Volume two explores magnetic and optical ceramics, electrical properties, chemical and energy applications, and bioceramics. Six papers from Beijing Jiaotong University investigate the static seal of magnetic fluid, the properties of magnetic fluids for sensor design, and magnetic fluid dampers. Other topics of the 380 papers from the November 2011 conference include nanoporous hydrophobic silica aerogels, modified alumina for automobile catalysts, pressureless sintering of silicon nitride ceramics, and the damping properties of epoxy-embedded piezoelectric composites.
