Overview of the Advanced Ceramics Industry in the United States

The ceramics industry in the United States remains vibrant and growing. Recent history and changes in the industry will be highlighted. The 38 members of the U.S. ACA include ceramic material makers, finishers, and end users with interests ranging widely from ceramics for transparent armor to ceramic matrix composites for nuclear fuel encapsulation (accident tolerance) and turbine engine application.

講演者プロフィールSpeaker Profile
Mr. Holowczak has over three decades of experience in the ceramics industry, working in a variety of areas including monolithic structural ceramics complex shape fabrication, application engineering of ceramics and CMCs to gas turbines, solid oxide fuel cell development, opaque and transparent armor, and development of CMC materials for turbine engine hot section and nuclear fuel containment. He received his Bachelors degree in Ceramic Engineering, and a Masters degree in Ceramic Science both from Rutgers University, USA. Highlights of his career include an RandD-100 award to the team he led from Kyocera, Pratt and Whitney, and Honeywell in demonstrating cooled silicon nitride turbine vanes, and working with Toshiba Ceramics to establish quality control procedures for use of ceramic ball bearing balls in the Space Shuttle Main Engine.
