The workshop “State of the art and challenges in thermal and mechanical modelling of ceramic materials” has brought together international experts in the field of ceramic science and material modelling and representatives from research institutes and industry with the following aims: (i) to set-up the state of the art of the constitutive modelling in ceramics, (ii) to assess the possibilities of improving efficiency and safety in industrial processes of refractories and (iii) to define the current challenges in the engineerization of the liquid steel technology as related to the use of ceramic components.
Dr. Elisa Rambaldi (Ceramic Centre) has presented the paper “Acoustic and Thermal Performances of Ceramic Tiles” (E. Rambaldi, F. Prete, G. Timellini, M.C. Bignozzi).
