Furthering all aspects of ceramics

The Australian Ceramic Society, is an organisation that works towards furthering all aspects of ceramics in science, industry, research, trade and in art. The Society aims to bring together all those interested and involved in ceramics for mutual co-operation and the exchange of knowledge and ideas.

The Society has a Federal Council comprised of representatives from the various state branches. These are in New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia and each operates autonomously with its own committee.

  • Dr Chau Chak Wing

    In an Australian first, world renowned architect Frank Gehry has lent his highly sought-after hands to the design of the Dr Chau Chak Wing Building for the Business School of the University of Technology Sydney. Utilising no less than 320,000 custom-made Bowral Bricks, the building has been heralded as the centerpiece of the $1-billion City Campus Master Plan.

  • Hot isostatic pressing

    A full-size hot isostatically pressed can containing ~30 kg of an inactive version of the waste form targeted for immobilising active waste from ANSTO’s new 99Mo radiopharmaceutical production plant when it goes online.

  • Fly ash

    Fly ash is a fine powder that is a byproduct of burning pulverized coal in electric generation power plants. Fly ash is a pozzolan, a substance containing aluminous and siliceous material that forms cement in the presence of water. When mixed with lime and water, fly ash forms a compound similar to Portland cement.

  • Powellite glass-ceramic nuclear waste simulant

    Backscattered SEM micrograph of the ANSTO-prepared inactive simulant of the active powellite glass-ceramic. The white material is mainly powellite (CaMoO4) plus apatite and the matrix is a borosilicate glass.

  • Cement

  • Carbide in Ferrite Matrix

    The influence of carbide morphology on the deformation and fracture mechanisms of as-received and complete spheroidization 14Cr1MoR steel was investigated using an in situ scanning electron microscope (SEM) under tension testing. During spheroidization damage, the carbide morphology changed from the original lamellar cementite present in pearlite to granular M23C6 carbide, which was concentrated along the ferrite grain boundaries.

  • Ga and GaN on Si

    The next generation of wireless base stations — both macro and small cell — need to incorporate technologies that deliver on these performance, efficiency and value requirements, and Gallium nitride (GaN) has emerged as a vital component. However, when evaluating GaN solutions, a common debate emerges: Which is the better solution for RF applications, Gallium nitride (GaN) on silicon (Si), or GaN on silicon carbide (SiC)?

  • Graphite Layers

    More Info Coming Soon!

  • Martensite

    Martensite is a body-centered tetragonal form of iron in which some carbon is dissolved. Martensite forms during quenching, when the face centered cubic lattice of austenite is distored into the body centered tetragonal structure without the loss of its contained carbon atoms into cementite and ferrite

  • Powdered Gypsum

    Gypsum powder is a natural product found in deposits throughout the United States. ... Naturally occurring gypsum is composed of calcium, sulfur, oxygen and hydrogen. Gypsum powder is mainly used in building materials such as drywall, but it is also useful in agriculture as a soil fertilizer and conditioner.

  • TiO2 electrode

The Society’s roots lie in both New South Wales and Victoria. In New South Wales, it had its genesis in the Department of Ceramic Engineering at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) which had been established in the late 1950’s under the late Professor Eric McCartney. In 1961, a meeting was called by Professor McCartney of all Sydney ceramists interested in the possible formation of some kind of Ceramic Society. The keynote speaker at this meeting was the late Len Cane, whom I believe became Chairman of the ‘Ceramic Society of New South Wales’ which resulted from this meeting.
