  • phase equilibria
  • Ceramics International is particularly keen to attract papers which deal with fundamental scientific aspects that are relevant to the development of the whole range of advanced ceramics including e.g. phase equilibria and transformations, reactivity, transport processes, thermodynamic and electronic properties, as well as quantum effects in low dimensional materials.

  • functional
  • MassArt Ceramics educates students in the field of professional ceramics, including functional, sculptural, educational, and design work complete for today's audience. (massart.edu)
  • Finally, advanced ceramics tend to exhibit unique or superior functional attributes that can be "precisely specified" by careful processing and quality control. (britannica.com)
  • For instance, I'm currently hooked on ceramics and cutlery that have a unique vibe to them that are also functional for daily use because I don't want ceramics as only art, but to be practical too. (decor8blog.com)
  • ceramics so pleasurable to both use and admire, they are one of those things that are functional but can also double as display objects to admire through the cabinet doors or stacked on a shelf, so they perform double duty in that sense. (decor8blog.com)
  • sculptures
  • Those hungry to find unusual objects that command more prestige have zeroed in on a weird and wondrous alternative: a new breed of sculptures and ceramic vessels that riff on natural forms but are imbued with artistic originality. (wsj.com)

  • main
  • The two main categories of ceramics are traditional and advanced. (encyclopedia.com)
  • The main limitation on the use of ceramics in engineering is brittleness. (wikipedia.org)
  • One of the main attractions of the Ceramic Conservation course at West Dean College was the unique and fantastic opportunity of being able to work on "real" objects. (westdean.org.uk)
  • range
  • With such a large range of possible options for the composition/structure of a ceramic (e.g. nearly all of the elements, nearly all types of bonding, and all levels of crystallinity), the breadth of the subject is vast, and identifiable attributes (e.g. hardness , toughness , electrical conductivity , etc.) are hard to specify for the group as a whole. (wikipedia.org)
  • Ceramics now include domestic, industrial and building products, as well as a wide range of ceramic art . (wikipedia.org)
  • Ceramists therefore take care to produce active ceramic powders with small grain size, usually in the submicrometre range-i.e., smaller than one micrometre, or one-millionth of a metre (0.000039 inch). (britannica.com)
  • This mew material is in addition to CoorsTek's vast range of ceramic materials used to make tubes, rods, extruded and cast materials. (azom.com)
  • types
  • Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, new types of ceramics were developed in response to advances in atomic energy, electronics, communications, and space travel. (wikipedia.org)
  • category
  • In this article the term advanced ceramics is used in order to distinguish the material from traditional ceramics, a category of industrial ceramics based on raw materials that are fabricated into products with comparatively little alteration from their natural state. (britannica.com)
  • Department
  • The purpose of our Departmental SGA Group is to help introduce the school and our department to contemporary ceramic practices and artists. (massart.edu)
  • The Ceramics Department offers beginning, intermediate and advanced courses designed to include technical and conceptual development that is imperative for individual success as an artist, designer and educator in the field of ceramics. (massart.edu)
  • My first and most enduring project since joining the West Dean College Ceramics Conservation Department has been the tobacco leaf platter. (westdean.org.uk)
  • include
  • These reasons for selecting a ceramic coating in preference to an organic paint include rendering the surface more chemically inert, impervious to liquids and gases, more readily cleanable, and more resistant to service temperature, abrasion, and scratching. (astm.org)
  • electricity
  • Some ceramics are virtually impervious to electricity and heat, making them ideal for applications ranging from insulators in household wiring to re-entry heat shields for spacecraft. (corning.com)
