Focusing on the work of component suppliers and materials characterization laboratories, this book provides a valuable insider's view of ceramic gas turbine development over the last two decades. Contributors who have been intimately involved with the manufacture and characterization of advanced ceramics for gas turbine-related work, share their first-hand experience and lessons learned. These important perspectives have led to improved materials and the development of new techniques to assess life prediction.
This volume includes an insightful retrospective and examines the current status and prognosis of the industry, along with its future needs. This book will be of interest to engineering and management personnel at turbomachinery equipment manufacturers, suppliers of ceramic materials and components, researchers in government and private laboratories, university teaching staff and students, and personnel involved in planning and monitoring technology development programs.
