The development of gas turbines with high turbine inlet temperatures and minimized cooling flows will lead to major fuel savings. Engine components fabricated from ceramic materials, have the potential to operate at the required high gas temperatures. In order to overcome their inherent brittleness, research programs were initiated to link improvements in ceramic material properties and fabrication methods with specific ceramic design technologies.
