Home > Press > ASTM Advanced Ceramics Committee Co-Sponsors Needs and Opportunities for Strength and Fracture Standards at Micro and Nano Scales Workshop

Abstract:
ASTM International Committee C28 on Advanced Ceramics and the American Ceramic Society are co-sponsoring a workshop, Needs and Opportunities for Strength and Fracture Standards at Micro and Nano Scales, on Jan. 27, 2008, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the Hilton Daytona Beach Resort in Daytona Beach, Fla. The workshop will be held in conjunction with the ASTM Committee C28 meetings to be held Jan. 26-27 and with the American Ceramic Society's 32nd International Conference and Exposition on Advanced Ceramics and Composites that runs Jan. 27 through Feb. 1.

ASTM Advanced Ceramics Committee Co-Sponsors Needs and Opportunities for Strength and Fracture Standards at Micro and Nano Scales Workshop

Daytona Beach, FL | Posted on September 21st, 2007

The explosion of interest in micro- and nano-electromechanical systems (MEMS and NEMS) and nano-scaled structural devices and components has generated a demand for well-defined procedures and methods to evaluate their mechanical properties, particularly strength and fracture resistance. Without detailed, reliable, consensus-based test standards, the global nanomaterials community cannot effectively exchange the technical information required for rapid progress and commercialization of MEMS and NEMS.

This workshop will review the current state-of-the-art of strength and fracture resistance measurement methodologies for miniature test specimens and devices. The structure of the workshop will feature short and informal oral presentations about current activities and test methods under development, followed by a roundtable discussion. Needs and opportunities for future work will be identified, as well as topics suitable for pre-standardization and standardization activities.

Potential speakers are invited to contact the following workshop organizers: Stephen Gonczy, Gateway Materials, Mount Prospect, Ill. (phone: 847/870-1621; ); Robert Cook, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, Md. (phone: 301/975-3207; ); or George Quinn, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, Md. (phone: 301/975-5765; ). Committee C28 will meet Jan. 27, 2008, in Daytona Beach, Fla. For membership or meeting information, contact Joe Koury, Technical Committee Operations, ASTM International (phone: 610/832-9804; ).

About ASTM
ASTM International is one of the largest voluntary standards development organizations in the world-a trusted source for technical standards for materials, products, systems, and services. Known for their high technical quality and market relevancy, ASTM International standards have an important role in the information infrastructure that guides design, manufacturing and trade in the global economy.

ASTM International, originally known as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), was formed over a century ago, when a forward-thinking group of engineers and scientists got together to address frequent rail breaks in the burgeoning railroad industry. Their work led to standardization on the steel used in rail construction, ultimately improving railroad safety for the public. As the century progressed and new industrial, governmental and environmental developments created new standardization requirements, ASTM answered the call with consensus standards that have made products and services safer, better and more cost-effective. The proud tradition and forward vision that started in 1898 is still the hallmark of ASTM International.
