Reinforced High Temperature Titanium Metal Matrix Composite Systems For Impeller Applications In Advanced Army Turboshaft Engines
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
FMW Composite Systems, Inc., in collaboration with Honeywell Aerospace (Engine Manufacturer) proposes to develop a nano dispersion reinforced titanium metal matrix composite (TiMMC) system that can operate at higher temperatures for impeller applications in advanced Army turboshaft engines. After determining the goal operating temperatures and pressures that will be experienced in advanced turbine engines, a TiMMC system that can meet the property goals will be down-selected using design of experiments approach. Manufacturability of the selected system will be demonstrated using subscale article fabrication. Performance of the TiMMC system will be proved by conducting coupon testing at room and elevated temperatures.
