The proposed work is of significant importance to the technological needs of the Air Force. The thermal barriers used in gas turbines comprise multi-layers with multiple functions. The extreme environments impose a harsh set of requirements on engine materials and require a new class of barrier coatings. This model based approach to designing new thermal barrier materials will enable the quantitative prediction of performance and exploit the full potential of new materials for these applications.
