Ceramic materials and components for energy and environmental applications
MetadataShow full item record
The global population growth and tremendous economic development has led to increasing demand for energy from all over the world as well as increasing concern for environment and global warming. The energy efficient and eco-friendly systems and technologies are critically needed for the further global growth and sustainable development. Advanced ceramics are enabling materials for a number of demanding energy efficient and eco-friendly applications in aerospace, power generation, ground transportation, nuclear, and chemical industries. These materials have unique properties such as high strength, high stiffness, long fatigue life, low density, and adaptability to the intended functions. Significant achievements have been made worldwide in the design, development, manufacturing, and application of these materials in recent years and considerable innovative research and technology development is still continuing to address technical and economic challenges. 9th International Conference on Ceramic Materials and Components for Energy and Environmental Applications (9th CMCEE) in Shanghai, China was continuation of series of international conferences held all over the world over the last three decades. The major goal of CMCEE was to bring together academicians, researchers, and end users in various disciplines from all over the world to share knowledge and exchange views leading to industrial applications of these technologies. The current volume contains selected peer reviewed papers from more than 300 presentations from all over the world. The papers in this volume also highlight and emphasize the importance of synergy between advanced materials and component designs. This volume also contains selected papers from 4th International Laser Ceramics symposium which was held during the same time period. We would like to thank organizers and sponsors of this symposium.
