Abstract:

The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of using Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (MEMS) and Nano-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (NEMS) technologies to create high performance thermal barrier coatings (TBC) that will improve the performance, efficiency and lifetime of gas turbine engines. The goal is to produce TBCs that have better thermal barrier properties, lower diffusion rates for impurities, and better mechanical stability than today's TBCs. Additionally, innovative design approaches will be developed that incorporate, for example, micro-cooling channels into the TBC layer using High Aspect Ratio Microscale Structures (HARMS).
