Sintering of Ceramics (ACerS)
Time:
9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. (Saturday)
9:00 a.m.- 2:30 p.m. (Sunday)

Location: Hilton Columbus Downtown, Columbus, Ohio

Instructors: Ricardo Castro, University of California, Davis

Description: Sintering is a ubiquitous processing step for manufacturing ceramics for a diverse set of applications. While commonly related to powder processing of ceramic parts, its important roles in other processes, such as additive manufacturing, nanotechnology and thin films, are less commonly discussed. In this two-day course we will cover the principles and practices in sintering, giving the students sufficient background to be able to (i) perform sintering of powders to achieve specified target microstructures, (ii) understand the difficulties encountered in practical powder sintering, (iii) take practical steps to rectify the problems encountered in producing required target microstructures, and (iv) understand how sintering aspects help optimization of related ceramic processes.
