H2020-NMP-2015(NMP-19-2015): Development of high-strength ductile nanocomposite ceramics based on refractory compounds for thermostress elements
Summary:
A research team from a Greek Research Centre is preparing a project proposal on the development of high-strength ductile nanocomposite ceramics based on refractory compounds for thermostress elements. The team is looking for partners (academic partner, Relevant SMEs, organization to develop standards) to complement a competitive consortium for the programme-call H2020-NMP-2015(NMP-19-2015).
Description:
Turbines are recognized as structural units of gas-turbine engines, which undergo the highest thermal and dynamic loads and are actively involved in the process of exchange of power and matter with the environment. Such loads result in their earlier damage, as compared with compressors, combustion chambers and other structural parts of gas-turbine engines. Serviceability of gas-turbine engines is also reduced due to the adverse abrasive and corrosive effects on their turbines of such air environment components as dust, moisture and salt (for marine vessels), as well as sulphur and its chemical compounds contained in fuels used by power-generating and transport facilities.

Apart from it, gas-turbine engine turbines are made of extremely expensive metal nickel-chromium alloys. This is due to the fact that the components of such alloys are hard-to-access in nature, while the methods of their production and processing are power- and labour-intensive, as well as extremely hazardous for the environment. At the same time, nickel-chromium turbines are rather heavy owing to the high density of their materials. The use of such systems makes the design of high-pressure turbines and the whole gas-turbine engines much more complex and expensive.
The 5th - generation gas-turbine engines are associated by all the experts with ceramic turbines. Ceramic turbines are recognized as an attribute of gas turbine engines, due to the fact that ceramic turbines provide solutions in the majority of the problems inherent in the 4th-generation gas-turbine engines and, at the same time, allow to increase engineering performance standards and reduce considerably the cost of 5th-generation gas turbine engines.

However, the extensive use of structural ceramics in the turbine engineering sphere was barred by its "Achilles heel", i.e. its inability to withstand tensile loads and large temperature swings. In addition, the currently existing technologies of obtaining ceramic blades are adapted for small-scale production. This poses a major challenge for materials science, and requires a fundamental understanding of how the processing, microstructure, nanostructure and properties of such material interact in order to enhance their response under more severe conditions. The general aim of the this proposal is to obtain nanocomposite ceramics with high hardness, strength and ductility from synthetic nanosize powders (based on ZrO2, Al2O3, WC, SiC-fiber, B4C) by hot pressing with a high current power transmission.

The team is looking for partners (academic partner, Relevant SMEs, organization to develop standards) to complement a competitive consortium.

Proposal Deadline: 26/03/2015
Deadline for EoIs: 18/03/2015
Advantages and Innovations:
The bulk nanomaterials obtaining is a challenge to modern technology consolidation of nanoparticles, which generally can be called sintering. In these processes the compaction and grain growth are competitive, which makes the difficult problem. The key task of nanomaterials sintering is to achieve a high density of the material while maintaining nanosize grains in the range where there is a size effect. The general aim of this proposal is to develop new products / components with a step change in efficiency or performance compared to existing ones, for operation in highly corrosive environments, under high friction conditions and high temperature.
Potential Impact:

·Increase in competitiveness and sustainability of European industry through high value products and manufacturing processes in the application sector
·Employment and training through engagement in cutting-edge technologies
