Oxidation of Rare-Earth Silicate Multilayer EBCs
Student: Benjamin Herren
Due to their high melting temperature, low density, and good thermomechanical stability silicon-based ceramics (SiC, Si3
) are one of the most promising materials systems for high temperature structural applications in gas turbine engines. However, their passivating SiO2
surface layer reacts with water vapor contained in combustion environments. Read More...
