An Integrated Study of a Novel Thermal Barrier Coating for Niobium Based High Temperature Alloy
Performer: Southern University System
Project No: FE0007220
This project will integrate high performance computer (HPC) simulation and experimental validation in material sciences to study the elastic constants, interface bonding, high-temperature microstructures, melting points, diffusion coefficients, and oxidation resistance of the proposed bond coat and top coat of Nb-based alloys. The project will explore new TBCs for Nb-based, high-temperature alloys and investigate their high-temperature properties.
