This symposium is related to the current status on all types of oxide as well as non-oxide ceramic matrix composites (CMCs). CMCs represent a unique class of structural materials, showing their potential in different applications like thermal protection systems in spacecraft, high-performance brake systems and in the hot sections of gas turbines. Besides the progresses in research and commercialization, some challenges still remain in order to leave the current niche market applications. Novel cost-efficient processes for oxide as well as non-oxide CMCs, new fibers and fiber preforms, modeling and simulation tools are key subjects of this symposium. All kind of contributions to structure-property-relationships and experiences in the design of lifetime structures in particular under oxidative conditions are welcome. Also, all cost aspects in the manufacturing and the use of CMCs in industrial systems, including designing, machining, and testing (e.g. NDE) are of interest of this symposium.
