Abstract

This project will develop innovative composite powders and composites that will surpass the properties of currently identified materials for advanced gas turbine engine applications. Phase I will demonstrate a powder metallurgy technique for fabricating high-temperature, oxidation-resistant composite powders. Once consolidated, the resulting composite will possess high creep and thermal fatigue strength, and a low coefficient of thermal expansion properties.
