ONR and NAVY Research in Ceramic Matrix composites systems for advanced naval engines

Conference Dates

November 5-9, 2017


Ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) are strategic propulsion materials due to their potentials to meet operational capability and requirements for advanced Naval engine systems. However, as in any new material systems, CMCs present technological issues and concerns when it comes to transition and maturation for advanced engine applications. These issues, all related to aggressive Naval engine operational environments, needs to be explored and taken into account in the design and integration of CMC hot-section materials and components for enhanced reliability and durability. Current focused S&T efforts will be presented and discussed as to how they are strategized to meet the Navy-unique challenges in conjunction with transitioning of CMC material systems to advanced Naval engines.
