From the Publisher

Ceramic-matrix composites are strong, tough, environmentally stable, light in weight, and have the ability to withstand high operating temperatures. These characteristics make them viable candidate materials for high temperature structural applications. Twenty three are included in this volume describing the latest developments in the areas of ceramic fibers, processing and fabrication, oxide and non-oxide composites, carbon-carbon composites, geopolymer composites, mechanical behavior, corrosion and environmental effects, characterization, fiber-matrix interface, design of composites, and thermal/environmental barrier coatings.

Microscopic Cars Square Off In Big Race

This car race involved years of training, feats of engineering, high-profile sponsorships, competitors from around the world and a racetrack made of gold. But the high-octane competition, described as a cross between physics and motor-sports, is invisible to the naked eye. In fact, the track itself is only a fraction of the width of a human hair, and the cars themselves are each comprised of a single molecule. The Nanocar Race, which happened over the weekend at Le centre national de la recherché scientific in Toulouse, France, was billed as the "first-ever race of molecule-cars." It's meant t

New Heat-resistant Ceramic Can Be Squished Like A Marshmallow

You probably shouldn't put that in your hot cocoa. Gao/Li/Wu/Brown University/Tsingua University It’s light enough to balance on a fuzzy blade of grass, incredibly heat-resistant, and can be squished like a marshmallow. It’s also a ceramic. In a study published Friday in Science Advances, researchers describe a new kind of ceramic sponge that can be manufactured quickly and economically, with none of the fragility that comes with a typical consumer ceramic (like bathroom tiles or ceramic unicorns). Ceramics are an attractive material for use in many manufacturing fields because they’re usually

Ceramic ‘Sponge’ Can Handle Heat And Never Cracks

Researchers have found a way to create a sponge-like material made from nanoscale ceramic fibers that is ultralight, deformable, and heat-resistant. The sponges could have numerous uses, from water purification devices to flexible insulating materials. “The basic science question we tried to answer is how can we make a material that’s highly deformable but resistant to high temperature,” says Huajian Gao, a professor at Brown University’s School of Engineering and a corresponding author of the research. “This paper demonstrates that we can do that by tangling ceramic nanofibers into a sponge,
