Abstract:

After discussing the potential advantages of using ceramics in engines, application studies of their use in gas turbines with particular emphasis on recent US work and diesels are reviewed. Considerable progress and success with several components is now being reported, and a valuable background of practical experience is accumulated. A strategy for future progress is discussed this should include adequate stress analysis and operating environmental definition, previous experience with engineering ceramic testing, a design and test reiteration capability, well-supported fabrication facilities, non-destructive evaluation and proof-testing of components, and strong engineering and materials science research efforts. The substance of this Report will be published in Proc. Brit. Ceram. Soc. as an introductory review in the Proceedings of a Conference on Engineering Applications and Properties of Ceramics. Author
