Ceramic Matrix Composites: The Challenges of Development and Technology Insertion

18 Sep 2019
Derby

A talk by Stephen Harris, Materials and Process Specialist, Rolls-Royce

Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) are the next generation of materials scoped for use in the HP turbine of modern jet engines.  These materials offer a substantial increase in temperature capability compared to current materials, which enables improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions. 
With the metallic systems that have been employed for decades there is a good fundamental understanding of their behaviour and failure mechanisms, but the novelty and complexity of CMCs necessitate a tremendous effort to establish this requisite knowledge base to minimize the risk and maximize the benefit of utilizing this technology in such a complex environment.
