Abstract:

Increasing the temperature of turbine inlet gas in aircraft gas turbine engines promises to improve engine performance and economy. Directionally solidified eutectic alloys give indication of achieving high temperature strengths far exceeding those of the best current superalloys. The AGARD Specialists Meeting on this subject held in Washington, D.C. in April 1974 reviewed the state of the art in the field, indentified gaps and difficulties in present knowledge and progress, and indicated approaches and goals for future efforts. TThis evaluation report summarizes and evaluates the present state of developments in in-situ composites and contains several recommendations concerning directions of work which are considered appropriate and necessary in this rapidly developing new field.
