AbstractTo meet future power generation needs, Florida Turbine Technologies, Inc. (FTT) is developing an innovative design approach to provide highly durable turbine components that require the lowest cooling flow possible. The Spar-Shell Turbine Blade system enables the use of advanced, high-temperature materials that are not available based on current design philosophies and manufacturing approaches. The proposed SBIR program is focused on verifying and validating this technology and developing the manufacturing techniques that will be required to produce the unique hardware. In addition to providing higher temperature capabilities, features of this system resolve the well-known technical barrier, thermal-mechanical-fatigue. This barrier limits heat flux levels and cyclic life of today
