Study Notes

Composition of Ceramics

  • Most ceramics are primarily composed of inorganic, non-metallic materials, often silicates, typically based on oxides, nitrides, or carbides.

Origin of the Term 'Ceramic'

  • The term 'ceramic' originates from the Greek word 'keramos', meaning potter's clay.

Traditional Ceramics

  • The most important materials in the traditional ceramics class were primarily made from clay, silicates, and aluminosilicates.

Industries Relying on New Generation Ceramic Materials

  • New generation ceramic materials are used in various industries, including aerospace, automotive, biomedical, energy, and electronics.

Evolution of Traditional Ceramics

  • Traditional ceramics have evolved in recent years, with advancements in materials science and technology leading to the development of new generation ceramic materials with improved properties.

Achieving Desirable Properties

  • Desirable properties of ceramic materials are achieved through a process involving the manipulation of their microstructure, composition, and processing conditions.
