Working Group of the Joint Committee High Performance Ceramics
Reinforcement of Ceramic Materials

The Working Group is the expert platform for developers, manufacturers and users of fiber-reinforced ceramic and composite materials.

The topics covered in the Working Group “Reinforcement of Ceramic Materials” range from basic scientific understanding and technological aspects to application, design and application-related material and component characterization.

The meetings of the Working Group are used for technical presentations on topics such as the measurement of interlaminar tensile and shear properties of composite ceramics, the determination of mechanical characteristic values or the challenges that arise in measurements in the high-temperature range. The practical use of ceramic parts in aircraft engines, micro gas turbines or as coatings in the rolling bearing industry also falls within the scope of the Working Group.


  • Discussion and development of industrial and scientific issues in the field of ceramic fiber composites as well as other fracture-resistant ceramics and natural fiber-derived materials.
  • Development of a scientifically sound understanding of the material and component properties of ceramic fiber-reinforced composites, both on the basis of experiments and modelling approaches and taking into account issues relevant to application.
  • Initiation of joint research and development projects between universities, research institutes and industry.
  • Exchange of experience, promotion of young scientists and networking.
