T2S1: Advanced Ceramics and Composites for Gas Turbine Engines

Register for 11th CMCEE


Ceramic technologies for sustainable development


Over the last decade, substantial progress has been made in the material development, manufacturing technologies, and applications of advanced ceramics and composites for gas turbine engines. Ceramic materials with superior mechanical and chemical properties, such as high hardness, high strength, good heat/corrosion resistance, and good tribological properties have been achieved via careful engineering design and tailoring of microstructure and interfacial properties. Thus, advanced ceramics and composites now exhibit potential uses as key hot section components in engines for ecofriendly transportation and electrical power systems with high fuel efficiency and minimum emissions. Long-term durability and structural reliability are critical issues for the secure and safe usage of these materials. This symposium will focus on the microstructural engineering, mechanical behavior, and component design of advanced ceramics and composites for gas turbine engines. Engineers and scientists are persevering in their efforts to understand the relationship between mechanical performance and material micro- and nanostructures for the purpose of establishing the reliability and durability of these materials, and this symposium is perfectly suited for this dialog.
