This quantity is the lawsuits of the third eu Symposium on Engineering Ceramics, held in London, 28-29 November 1989, below the auspices of IBC Technical prone Ltd. The Symposium classes have been chaired by way of Eric Briscoe, who additionally brought the Symposium with the very applicable evaluation 'Ceramics in Europe'. The time period 'engineering ceramics' is often taken to intend a bunch of exact high-strength and heat-resistant ceramic fabrics built virtually solely for the complex inner combustion engine of the subsequent century. it's not continuously totally liked that top grade effective microstructure ceramics either one of the oxide and of the non-oxide sessions, whether or not they be termed engineering, positive, designated, complex, structural or technical, were assisting a great number of diversified and ecocnomic industries over many many years. certainly, in a few respects those fabrics could be considered as average advancements from the lengthy demonstrated refractories box, and the excellence among an engineering ceramic and a refractory can turn into blurred, because the contribution during this quantity on 'Nitride Bonded Carbide Engineered Ceramics' indicates. it really is of value that during Japan, for instance, a lot improvement paintings within the engineering ceramics box was once initiated through the refractories industries, looking to diversify in all probability yet doing so at the foundation oflong event within the refractories zone. the most aim of this Symposium was once to assist engineers and architects to evaluate the current nation of the sphere of engineering ceramics.

It is anticipated that the standardization of these specifications will be the responsibility of user groups rather than material groups. Standard specifications already exist in the electrotechnical field and the concept is being examined in other areas. Standardization of Engineering Ceramics 25 4. CONCLUSION The commercial exploitation of the new advanced ceramics is poised to take off, and this has stimulated a need for product standards. This need is on an international basis led from three viewpoints, Europe, Japan and USA.

HORTON SKF Engineering and Research Centre B. V. Postbus 2350. 3430 Dr. Nieuwegein. The Netherlands 1. INTRODUCTION Bearing designers have long been interested in ceramic materials both to increase the performance of bearings and to extend the range of operation to higher temperatures and corrosive environments.
It is only since the development of hot-pressed silicon nitride in the early 1970s that bearing manufacturers have been able to investigate the potential of ceramics in bearings. Subsequent advances in the understanding of the basic science of nitrogen ceramics and the relationships between structure, properties and defect populations have led to the adoption of silicon nitride as the standard ceramic material for bearings. 2. SILICON NITRIDE Properties of ceramics and bearing steels are compared in Table 1.
