Abstract:

A microwave-assisted chemical vapor infiltration (CVI) process is proposed as a low cost method for fabrication of ceramic composite components for expendable turbine engines. In Phase I, optimum processing parameters for a small scale reactor d(4" diameter reaction zone and 2.6 kW microwave power source) will be defined and a small scale (3" outer diameter, 0.8" thick) C/SiC/SiC combustor cans will be fabricated for rig testing. A preliminary production cost assessment will be based upon processing time required to fabricate these test articles. A scaled-up reactor that will be used in Phase II to fabricate 12-13" diameter annular and radial outflow combustors will be designed.
