In this case study webinar for academics, we will explore high-temperature materials, in particular nickel- and cobalt-based superalloys and technical ceramics, for aerospace and automotive applications. Inspired by an industrial research conference presentation, we have studied the suitability of ceramic turbine blades as alternatives to metal alloys for aerospace and automotive applications. We will describe the selection procedure in detail and compare the result with the currently used Inconel 713 superalloy. We will also discuss how environmental and sustainability aspects can be included in this case.
What you will learn:
An introduction to high-temperature aerospace materials
How to select materials for turbocharger blades using the Aerospace edition of GRANTA EduPack
The concept of “critical materials” and challenges in aerospace applications considering environmental and sustainability performance.
Who is it for?
Current license holders of the advanced databases of GRANTA EduPack and academics who would like to use it in future
