Award List:

High-Temperature Environmental Barrier Coating for Silicon Carbide Composites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: Univ. of California Santa Barbara
Principal Investigator: Derek Hass, Dir. of Research and Development – (434) 977-1405
Award Amount: $749,957.00
RI Contact: Carlos Levi
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Lightweight silicon-based ceramics are leading candidates to replace heavier nickel-based superalloys for use on hot section components in next generation gas turbine engines having increased specific power. However, exposures of these materials to the high temperatures, pressures and… More

Electron Beam/Physical Vapor Deposition (EB/PVD) Coating Process Mapping for Complex Shapes

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Balvinder Gogia, Director - Research&Dev – (434) 977-1405
Award Amount: $748,936.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Thermal barrier coatings are currently employed to thermally protect gas turbine engine components from high gas inlet temperatures to improve the performance (fuel efficiency and thrust) of these engines. Enhanced benefits are envisioned in future TBC systems if TBC"s reliability… More

Development of Multifunctional Damping Coating Systems for Turbine Engine Components

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Derek Hass, Director - Research&Dev – (434) 977-1405
Award Amount: $736,940.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Research is proposed to investigate the feasibility of modifying the composition and microstructure of thermal barrier coating (TBC) systems to enable enhanced damping capacity while retaining or improving overall system performance. The rotating components, used in gas turbine engines… More

Corrosion Resistant Non-Toxic Coatings for High-Strength Arresting Gear Tailhook Components

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Susie Eustis, Research Scientist – (434) 977-1405
Award Amount: $749,028.00
Abstract:
The principal aim of this program is to develop non-toxic corrosion resistant coatings to replace cadmium for tailhook applications on the Joint Strike Fighter. These coatings need to be dense, effective at preventing corrosion of the substrate alloy, and applicable onto non line-of-sight component… More

Impact Resistant Environmental Barrier Coatings (EBCs) for Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Derek Hass, Director, Research&Deve – (434) 977-1405
Award Amount: $749,517.00
Abstract:
Lightweight silicon-based ceramics are leading candidates to replace heavier nickel-based superalloys for hot section components used in advanced gas turbine engines having increased specific power. Unfortunately, exposures of these materials to the high temperature combustion environments alter the… More
