Abstract

The objective of this program is to develop an integrated approach for the development of methods for the prediction and manufacture of special features such as holes, cooling channels, dovetails, leading and trailing edges in ceramic composite turbine blades. BENEFIT: The development of cooled ceramic composite turbine components will extend the engine operating efficiencies to a new level. This will aid the reduction in fuel consumption and reduced engine weights for future engine applications
