AbstractNot Available There is a need for a fundamentally sound and experimentally validated methodology and software for life prediction for ceramic matrix composite (CMC) propulsion system components and attachments with environmental barrier coatings (EBCs). The present proposal is for a reserach and development project focused on developing the needed methodology would be implemented in a software package for use by design engineers. A mechanistic framework is proposed for developing the methodology which includes explicit consideration of damage mechanisms relevant to EB Coated CMCs. Phase I involves model development and preliminary validate of the methodology; mainly to assess the viability of a more comprehensive software development effort in Phase II. The proposed product is timely for IHPTET applications, and readily marketable to military and commercial aerospace industries and to land based gas turbine manufacturers. The development effort directly complements Air Force's ongoing activities in CMC components development for advanced jet engine and rocket propulsion systems.
