This project will focus on development of advanced thermal based coatings (TBC) to improve the performance of coatings for Nb-based, high-temperature alloys. A computer model to predict the properties of novel thermal barrier coatings will be developed and validated. Concurrent laboratory testing will be used to validate predictions of the model.
This project will focus on development of advanced TBC. Improvement to high-temperature advanced-materials will promote the development of advanced power plant designs that can operate at higher temperatures and pressures, leading to improvements in efficiency and operational flexibility.
