CCMC Research Program Five Program Thrust Areas
  1. Catalysts and Porous Materials
  2. Powder Synthesis and Processing
  3. Ceramic Armor/Structural Ceramics
  4. Materials for Energy Conversion
  5. Nanomaterial Particulate Synthesis and Processing

Genesis of the Ceramic Armor Subgroup
  • In 2000, a separate Center was formed at Rutgers
  • High Fidelity Design and Processing of Advanced
    Armor Ceramics A U.S. Army Research Laboratory
    Material Center of Excellence providing 6
    funded projects
  • A component of this ARL funded program was to
    implement technology transfer to industries
    involved in Ceramic Armor
  • In January 2001 a 1 day Workshop was held at
    Rutgers, ½ day Technical Session with Industry
    and ½ day on needs of Industry. (30 Companies
    were invited, 21 Companies attended)
  • The Spring IUCRC IAB was approached to discuss
    the formation of a Ceramic Armor Subthrust.
    Approval was provided and RFP to faculty was

Genesis of the Ceramic Armor Subgroup (cont.)
  • 30 proposals were submitted from Faculty.
  • At the Fall 2001 IUCRC IAB meeting a separate One
    Day Subgroup Meeting was held, with current and
    prospective members invited.
  • The 30 proposals were prioritized and regrouped
    into a final 5 projects. The IAB approved the
    funding of these projects based upon interest of
    existing members and interest of potential
  • Projects were initiated in 2002.
  • 12 new members have joined the Center
    specifically for the Armor Subgroup.
  • Funding has grown to allow for 7 projects
  • 1 Day Armor Subgroup meetings are held preceeding
    Spring and Fall IAB meetings
  • 8 prospective members are being recruited by the
