Surfaces and surface forces on play the most important role in processing of ceramics in liquid and solid state. After a brief introduction of thermodynamics of surfaces, the course introduces conventional ceramic processing techniques, like pressing, Extrusion, jiggering, slip casting, doctor blading, firing and sintering. Second portion of the course deals with powder synthesis and processing through conventional and novelle chemical methods.Finally, powder and materials characterization techniques for ceramic materials will be introduced.
