Multifunctional Cement Composites With Load-Bearing And Self-Sensing Properties

This invention consists of a rapid, simplified, lower-cost method for production of a cement composite with enhanced load-bearing and damage detecting properties.

CERAMIC MATERIALS WITH IMPROVED MECHANICAL PROPERTIES AND ELECTRICAL CONDUCTIVITY

Researchers at the University of California, Davis have developed a ceramic composite material with improved mechanical properties and electrical conductivity. This technology is currently available for licensing.

Ultra-High Strength, Energy-Absorbing Metal-Ceramic Composites

Researchers at the University of California, Davis and collaborators have developed a series of tri-modal composites composed of both metal and ceramic materials with ultra-high strength and unexpected ductility. This novel material will out-perform current structural materials, such as aluminum and steel in applications such as structures, structural armor, bumper guards and other energy-absorbing applications. The incorporation of nanocrystalline phases and multiple length scales results in improved material properties in this multiple-grain-sized composite, compared to their solely microcrystalline or nanocrystalline counterparts.
