Agency: DOE
Contract: DE-FG02-09ER85390
Award Amount: $99,934.00
 

Abstract:

This project will identify and screen refractory metal alloys and coating systems that would enable an innovative turbine airfoil concept to be used to increase the efficiency of the gas turbine engines used in Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) power plants. In Phase I, engine simulation tests will be conducted to identify which of two candidate material systems is more damage tolerant. Phase II will involve the design, fabrication, and test of a refractory metal airfoil for a spar and shell turbine component. Commercial Applications and other Benefits as described by the awardee: The incorporation of refractory metal airfoils into gas turbine engines would enable revolutionary design concepts that would significantly reduce parasitic cooling flows, thus increasing cycle performance, reducing fuel consumption, and reducing emissions.
