Abstract
In this STTR program, QuesTek Innovations LLC, a leader in the field of computational materials design, proposes to expand its computational Materials by Design technology by developing a thermodynamics-based design toolkit that enables the subsequent design and development of novel calcium-magnesium-alumino-silicate (CMAS)-resistant, high performance thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) for aeroengine components (e.g., turbine blades). Prof. C. G. Levi from the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) is QuesTeks university partner conducting experiments to support the design of high-performance TBCs. This program will involve Pratt & Whitney (P&W) Corporation, a leading turbine engine manufacturer, to ensure a strong commercialization path for the coating solutions developed by QuesTek Innovations.
