primarily deals with the fundamental aspects of ceramic science
and their application to the development
of improved ceramic materials. The journal particularly encourages papers that show how ceramic science can be used to improve the quality,
reliability and performance
through the development of advanced materials
and manufacturing techniques.
Fabrication processes which Ceramics International
concentrates on include all the advanced techniques employed to produce ceramic
components of improved quality, reliability and performance. Ceramics International
is particularly concerned with powder and
material processing. Subjects covered in these areas include:
Solid state, chemical precipitation, hydrothermal,
vapour phase, laser, plasma and SHS synthesis, polymer and gel processing.Processing Methods
Pressing, extrusion, injection
moulding, rolling, calendering, electrophoretic deposition, casting, hot pressing (including isostatic), forging, plasma sintering, high
pressure, ion-beam and laser processing.Ceramics International
covers process related topics including advanced coatings
and sealants, surface finishing and conditioning and composite technology.
covered by the journal include engineering,
electrical, electro-optic, magnetic, nuclear and bioceramics, refractories, whiteware and heavy clay based products.Ceramics International
is particularly keen to attract papers which also deal with the science and design aspects of ceramics that are relevant to service performance
and which cover the whole range of ceramic products.
