Owing to their outstanding structural properties and performance, ceramic materials have been applied in a large number of engineering fields at all temperature regimes and environments, including e.g. transportation, space, energy generation, microelectronics, optical systems, armour, and clinical uses. A great amount of research work has been performed for decades to limit the effect of their intrinsic brittleness and to understand the deformation and failure modes.  In addition, more recent substantial advances to learn, control, and design ceramics at the nanoscale have been achieved, but the long-term mechanical reliability remains a critical issue for successful application in specific demanding applications. This symposium aims to address recent achievements on correlations between micro (nano) structure and the effects of application environments on the mechanical/thermomechanical behaviour of bulk ceramics including graded structures, ceramic matrix and metal matrix composites, and thin and thick film coatings. Advanced analytical and computational tools to establish constitutive models for complex loading conditions, in-situ studies and non-destructive testing, and newly alternative approaches for characterization will be relevant topics for discussions among the several aspects critical for understanding and determining ceramics mechanical performance and long-term reliability.

Main proposed topics for discussions:
  • Failure analysis (strength, creep, slow crack growth, fatigue)
  • Elastic properties
  • Hardness, toughness, stiffness
  • Friction, wear
  • Contact damage, ballistic impact, thermal shock
  • Mechanical stress/thermal tress analyses
  • Nanomechanics
  • Plastic deformation of nanostructured materials
  • Deformation-induced phase transformations
  • Microstructure and mechanical/thermomechanical properties relationships
  • Mechanical and thermomechanical characterization techniques
  • Micromechanical and in-situ testing
  • Non-destructive testing
  • Theory and modelling/quantum mechanics/molecular dynamics/finite element methods
  • Life prediction and design criteria for structural ceramic components
  • Mechanical testing of joined and integrated components and structures
Session Topics
