Ceramics Potential in Automotive Powerplants
The paper addresses the potential that ceramic materials can play an important role in future automotive powerplants — both advanced heat engines and advanced battery systems. A number of related experimental programs are reviewed including ceramics for gasoline and diesel piston engines, gas turbine and Stirling Engines and sodium-sulfur batteries. A strong integrated program to develop ceramics technology is recommended.
