The Ceramic Engineering and Science Proceeding has been published by The American Ceramic Society since 1980. This series contains a collection of papers dealing with issues in both traditional ceramics (i.e., glass, whitewares, refractories, and porcelain enamel) and advanced ceramics. Topics covered in the area of advanced ceramic include bioceramics, nanomaterials, composites, solid oxide fuel cells, mechanical properties and structural design, advanced ceramic coatings, ceramic armor, porous ceramics, and more. With new volumes added annually in one organized and readily accessible place, volumes include proceedings from a variety of conferences including, The Glass Problems Conference, The International Conference on Advanced Ceramics and Composites, The Porcelain Enamel Institute Technical Forum, and the Whitewares and Materials Division meeting of The American Ceramic Society. This series has become THE source for staying informed about cutting-edge ceramic science and technologies.
