Ceramic Abstracts/World Ceramics Abstracts

 
 
Ceramic Abstracts/World Ceramics Abstracts is produced by Cambridge Scientific Abstracts in conjunction with CERAM Research Ltd. This is a comprehensive database for the ceramics industry, providing international coverage on the manufacture, processing, applications, properties and testing of traditional and advanced ceramics.

Sources covered include over 3,000 periodicals, conference proceedings, technical reports, trade journal/newsletter items, patents, books, and press releases.

Subject Coverage
    Major areas of coverage include:
    • whitewares (tableware, sanitary-ware, tiles)
    • functional, technical and advanced ceramics (electro-ceramics, engineering ceramics, composites)
    • abrasives
    • building ceramics (bricks, pipes, roofing tiles, cement-based materials)
    • refractories
    • glass
    • raw materials
    • ceramics processing and treatment
    • properties and testing
    • applications (e.g. bioceramics, automotive, aerospace, nuclear)
    • commercial and economic information
    • legislation and standards
    • environmental and pollution information
    • metal-ceramic systems
Dates of Coverage
    Approximately 1975-current. The oldest record in the database has a publication date of 1971; about 50% of its records have publication dates of 1990 or later.
Update Frequency
    Once a month. Approximately 15,000 new records are added per year.
Size
    Over 0 records as of May 2013
Thesaurus
    The database is indexed using a master authority file of about 40,000 controlled-vocabulary terms. Older records in this database were indexed using a file-specific thesaurus; this thesaurus has now been incorporated into the master authority file.

    AB: Abstract
    The asymmetrical four-point bend (AFPB) method, which provides a pure shear stress state in the middle of the test specimen, was used to measure the shear strength of the joints between Nicalon-fibre-reinforced SiC composites. The small test specimens were prepared as butt-joints with uniform depth (no notch). It was shown experimentally that the position of loading points is critical to induce shear fracture at the joint without the failure of base material. The appropriate positions for the test specimen were determined and, as a result, an articulated ceramic fixture was designed. This test method is economical, involves small test specimens with simple geometry, and can be used at high temperatures. 6 refs.
