Materials Research Center and Ultra-High Temperature Ceramics Research at Missouri S&T

Date: 
Wednesday, February 6, 2019 - 4:00pm
Event Type: 

This presentation will provide an overview of materials research at Missouri S&T and then highlight some recent accomplishments in research related to ultra-high temperature ceramics.  The Materials Research Center at Missouri S&T has two missions:  1) serve as a campus resource for major research instrumentation; and 2) promote interdisciplinary materials research.  A short overview will describe capabilities within the center and highlight some on-going research.  The second part of the presentation will focus on research on ultra-high temperature ceramics (UHTC).  Professors Hilmas and Fahrenholtz in the Materials Science and Engineering Department at Missouri S&T have collaborated for more than 15 years on UHTC research.  The presentation will review some past accomplishments, describe some of the unique research infrastructure, and highlight some on-going projects related to UHTCs.
