Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC) were originally developed for limited-life structures in aerospace industry as a lightweight and heat-resistant alternative to metal-based materials. Today, they can be manufactured with customized properties and therefore offer a wide field of terrestrial applications e.g. in transportation and energetic systems.
This international conference continues the series of successful HT-CMC which were held in Bordeaux (France, 1993), Santa Barbara (USA, 1995), Osaka (Japan, 1998), Munich (Germany, 2001), Seattle (USA, 2004) and New Delhi (India, 2007).
The HT-CMC 7 in Bayreuth will offer a broad scale of plenary and oral lectures and posters on todays top scientific research, accompanied with an industrial exhibition and an attractive social program. A reviewed proceedings book will be available during the conference.
