Abstract:

ADVANCED AEROSPACE ENGINES AND STRUCTURAL COMPONENTS REQUIRE MATERIALS CAPABLE OF OPERATING IN OXIDIZING ENVIRONMENTS AT 3000 DEG - 40000 DEG F (1650 DEG - 2200 DEG C). TO ACHIEVE THIS OBJECTIVE WILL REQUIRE DEVELOPING ADVANCED COMPOSITE STRUCTURES AND PROTECTING THEM WITH NOVEL COATING SYSTEMS. THIS PHASE I PROPOSAL IS DIRECTED AT EVALUATING A NEW CLASS OF HAFNIUM OXIDE-BASED COATINGS THAT CAN SURVIVE FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME AT THE UPPER TEMPERATURE LIMIT OF 2200 DEG C. METHODS OF PREPARATION AND EVALUATION OF THE COATING MATERIALS ARE DISCUSSED. STABILITY, WEIGHT LOSS, AND CHANGES IN BULK AND SURFACE COMPOSITION AFTER EXPOSURE AT 2200 DEG C IN AIR WILL BE MEASURED. COMPATABILITY WITH CARBON AND DIFFUSION BARRIERS AT HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL ALSO BE EVALUATED.
