Abstract
SPARTA, INC. PROPOSES TO ASSESS THE ADVANTAGES OF CERAMIC WHISKER REINFORCED THERMAL BARRIER COATINGS IN PROVIDING COATING INTEGRITY FOR GAS TURBINE AIRFOILS AND DIESEL ENGINE COMPONENTS. THE SPARTA PHASE I TECHNICAL PROGRAM HAS THREE TECHNICAL TASKS. IN TASK 1, SPARTA WILL SELECT THE COATING SYSTEM TO BE STUDIED, THE RANGE OF REINFORCEMENT VOLUME FRACTIONS TO BE INCLUDED AND THE PROCESSING PARAMETERS TO BE EMPLOYED. IN TASK 2, UNREINFORCED AND REINFORCED COATINGS WILL BE FABRICATED AND EXAMINED FOR UNIFORMITY AND POROSITY. IN TASK 3, THE FRACTURE TOUGHNESS OF THE UNREINFORCED AND REINFORCED COATINGS WILL BE EXPERIMENTALLY MEASURED. AN ASSESSMENT WILL BE MADE OF THE SENSITIVITY OF COATING FRACTURE TOUGHNESS TO REINFORCEMENT VOLUME FRACTION AND PROCESSING PARAMETERS. THE PROPOSED PROGRAM WILL IDENTIFY THAT COMBINATION OF REINFORCEMENT AND PROCESSING PARAMETERS WHICH PRODUCES THE MAXIMUM ENHANCEMENT IN THERMAL BARRIER COATING FRACTURE TOUGHNESS.
