CMC and High Temperature Technologies (SILEOT 2 P19)

Future civil aerospace gas turbine competitiveness will rely on higher temperature core turbo machinery, and higher temperature performance cycle to improve fuel burn and emissions. This ATI-approved project focused on the development of new high temperature turbine capability. The application of novel Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC) has been explored as a potential new material system in the core turbines. A number of other technologies, including new alloy chemistry and protective coating developments will also due to be developed.
