Project Description

The goal of this project is to develop alloys capable of fulfilling the requirements stated in the FutureGen program using a multi-staged integrated methodology for systematically and efficiently searching multi- component metal alloy systems that have high melting points and good oxidation resistance at high operating temperatures. Promising alloys will then be screened for thermochemical stability using state of the art experimental methods.

Project Benefits

This project will develop high-temperature, oxidation-resistant alloys capable of meeting the requirements of high-temperature gas turbine components. Improvement to high-temperature advanced materials will: (1) improve the alloy materials selection process for use in advanced power systems design, (2) improve power plant operation, (3) reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and pollutants, and (4) raise efficiency resulting in reduced costs and conservation of energy resources.
