Abstract:

The use of polymer matrix composites in selected parts of the future aircraft turbine engines offers significant benefits for aircraft engine performance. However, their useful life time (durability) is limited by their poor erosion resistance. UES, Inc. proposes to develop advanced highly adherent coatings utilizing physical vapor deposition technique to impart erosion resistance to polymer matrix composites. The coating systems will be characterized in terms of adhesion and erosion resistance under appropriate conditions. Based upon their performance ranking, coating systems and processes will be identified for further development in Phase II.
