Computational Studies of Physical Properties of Nb-Si Alloy

Performer: Tennessee State University

Project No: FE0003798

Program Background and Project Benefits

This project will focus on development of Nb-Si alloys that will improve the high-temperature performance of advanced power generation components. Development of these alloys will lead to greater operational flexibility in coal-fired power plants. It will enable cola-fired plants to operate at desired conditions, resulting in improved efficiency leading to reduction of all effluents and waste products, including carbon dioxide.
