Poster #8: IAN MCCOLLOUGH – Castable Porous Ceramic Insulation

<< Return to the Main Page

Faculty mentor: Raymond Cutler

We have been making use of a standard vibrational plate in order to mix ceramic insulation. We have been using an industrial powder and base, and through the use of additives have been trying to alter its physical properties, such as density, strength, and thermal conductivity. We have been doing this through the use of poreformers such as corn starch and alcohol. In the future we hope to scale up production and begin testing for an altering the thermal conductivity of the cast material.
