Ceramics for HighTemperature Applications

Ceramics for HighTemperature Applications THE advent of the modern jettype power plant for aviation has greatly accelerated the development of new hightemperature ceramic materials. These power plants are essentially hightemperature engines which convert heat energy into work. The greater the differential in temperature of the air between the beginning and end of the conversion, the greater the efficiency of the engine. Consequently, turbojets, gas turbines, ramjets and rockets have created a demand for materials which will withstand elevated temperatures and vibration and possess good resistance to thermal shock. Ceramic materials seem to offer the best promise of providing these desirable characteristics. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

THE advent of the modern jettype power plant for aviation has greatly accelerated the development of new hightemperature ceramic materials. These power plants are essentially hightemperature engines which convert heat energy into work. The greater the differential in temperature of the air between the beginning and end of the conversion, the greater the efficiency of the engine. Consequently, turbojets, gas turbines, ramjets and rockets have created a demand for materials which will withstand elevated temperatures and vibration and possess good resistance to thermal shock. Ceramic materials seem to offer the best promise of providing these desirable characteristics.
