Abstract

This program is supported by the Department of Energy (DOE) as part of the Component Development Technology Program. Administered by the NASA Lewis Research Center (Contract DEN3-00019), this program’s objectives are to evaluate the durability of ceramic stators over a highly dynamic automotive gas turbine duty cycle and to assess the capability of current ceramic design methodology to predict the durability of the stators over the selected duty cycle for times in excess of 200 hours. The program also provides an assessment of the ability of the ceramic industry to fabricate complex geometry monolithic stators by near-net-shape forming processes.
