Monolithic and composite advanced ceramics have reached sufficient levels of material development to warrant serious consideration for applications in advanced heat engines. These applications require optimum material behavior with physical and mechanical property reproducibility, component reliability, and well-defined methods of data treatment and materials analysis. As new materials are introduced into the market place, these issues are best dealt with via standard methods. The primary standards writing organization in the U.S. is the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), a private, nonprofit corporation which relies upon the voluntary cooperation of industry, government, and academe to develop standards by consensus. ASTM Committee C28 “Advanced Ceramics” has been active since 1986 and currently has 16 standards “on the books” with 17 standards in the balloting process. Overviews of the five subcommittees of C28 are presented. Accomplishments to date are discussed, as well as future activities, including a brief summary of joint cooperative efforts with international standards formulating organizations.
