  • Sundlof, Brian (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 1999-12)
    The goal of this research was to produce ceramic alumina microstructures with controlled porosity attained through the exploitation of polymeric phase separation. In order to accomplish this goal, a fundamental understanding ...
  • Kotze, Samantha J.; Fowler, Ryan M. (2020-05)
    Understanding the conditions that contribute to powder flow are essential to anticipate the segregation of particles in flow situations. Although various methods are used to quantify powder flow and powder fill in industry, ...
  • Pettit, Corine (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2016-09)
    Injection molding is a common industrial process used to create near-net shaped ceramic parts. In today’s industry, it is most common for injection molding batches to use thermoplastic binder systems; however the advantages ...
  • Pinto, Brian (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2006-02)
    Porcelain bodies were created to test the hypothesis that critical flaws govern the strength of ceramics. By systematically evaluating controlled changes to the porcelain body on mechanical properties and critical flaw ...
  • Ouyang, Ruifeng (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2015-08)
    Firing conditions have consistently played a vital role in the research of ancient ceramics for archeologists. Eighteen ancient Chinese porcelain shards of between 900-1200 years ago, excavated from Jingdezhen were ...
  • Schulz, Brett (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2004-09)
    Dry pressing has been shown to be an efficient and cost effective method of manufacturing ceramic ware. Dry pressed parts are typically manufactured with a low moisture content which has the further advantage of eliminating ...
  • Decarlo, Keith (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2011-05)
    Application of DLVO (Derjaguin, Landau, Verwey, and Overbeek) theory for suspensions utilizing non-aqueous suspension mediums has been tested. Prediction of suspension stability using DLVO theory requires the calculation ...
  • Colorado, Victor (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Inamori School of Engineering., 2014-12)
    Fast firing of commercial porcelains continues to be an important aspect of ceramic manufacturing. The ability to predict the firing conditions necessary to densify a given body could be quite valuable as a means to ...

  • Lerdprom, Wirat (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2014-07)
    It is common to think of fast firing of porcelain tiles as unrelated to the conventional firing cycles typically used in the whitewares industry. In other words, it appears that the densification and mineralogy in fast ...
  • Lam, Thomas (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2010-12)
    Sintering in alumina has been extensively studied with a wide range of compositions and a correspondingly large variability of reported chemistries and mineralogy in the grain boundaries. Even with recent advances in the ...
  • Swarts, Paul (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2015-04)
    The contribution of die-wall friction in ceramic extrusion systems is a variable that has been studied to only a limited degree. The introduction of abrasion-resistant surface coatings, now a common practice in industry, ...
  • Tseng, Kuo-Pin (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2015-08)
    Quantitative mineralogy is a critical aspect of material performance and is typically obtained via quantitative X-ray diffraction (QXRD). This thesis proposes that quantitative mineralogy can be reasonably predicted from ...
  • Keefe, Kevin (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2015-09)
    When phenolic resin is pyrolized, carbon is left behind. Maximizing the carbon yield from this pyrolysis was the goal. Standard pyrolysis loses a sizeable amount of carbon in the form of volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) ...
  • Kim, Ungsoo (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2002-09)
    The proper use of multiple polymeric additives in ceramic processing is discussed. First, the use of a polyelectrolyte as a dispersant is studied by looking at the adsorption of various molecular weight PAAs on clay and ...
