Summary

Summary

Due to its many potential benefits, including high electricalefficiency and low environmental emissions, solid oxide fuel cell(SOFC) technology is the subject of extensive research anddevelopment efforts by national laboratories, universities, andprivate industries. In these proceedings, international scientistsand engineers present recent technical progress onmaterials-related aspects of fuel cells including SOFC componentmaterials, materials processing, and cell/stack design,performance, and stability. Emerging trends in electrochemicalmaterials, electrodics, interface engineering, long-term chemicalinteractions, and more are included.

This book is compiled of papers presented at the Proceedings of the30th International Conference on Advanced Ceramics and Composites,January 22-27, 2006, Cocoa Beach, Florida. Organized and sponsoredby The American Ceramic Society and The American Ceramic Society'sEngineering Ceramics Division in conjunction with the Nuclear andEnvironmental Technology Division.


Author Notes

Andrew A. Wereszczak received his Ph.D. in Materials Science& Engineering from the University of Delaware in 1992, andwhile his research is varied, the study and interpretation of therelationship between mechanical properties and microstructure (ofmonolithic ceramics, structural materials, and electronicmaterials) are common denominators. Micromechanicalcharacterization of structural and armor ceramics usinginstrumented static and dynamic indentation (e.g., Hertzian) withacoustic emission analysis, and adapting those measuredperformances and damage mechanism analyses to strength, rollingcontact fatigue, wear, machining, and ballistic performances is aprimary objective.
Additionally, ceramic strength and fatigue testing, ceramicfractographical and flaw population analyses, Weibull analysisstrength-size-scaling, and probabilistic life prediction and designof structural ceramic components constitutive another primaryresearch objective. In support of all these efforts, bothconventional and microstructural-level finite element stressanalyses and microstructure characterization are performed. He isthe author or co-author of over 100 technical publications and hasgiven over 80 presentations, and is the co-developer of ¬Ķ-FEA software.
