Use of Continuous Fiber Reinforced Composites in Combustor Liner Applications 941072
In keeping with the Department of Energy's mission of national energy conservation and environmental preservation, higher combustor operating temperatures are required. The DOE's strategy envisions gas turbines with improved performance, lower emissions, and greater temperature durability. The high temperature properties of continuous fiber reinforced ceramic composites make them ideal for combustor applications. Potential has been demonstrated in endurance tests on composite subscale combustor liners.
