Ansys GRANTA EduPack Case Study: Selection and Sustainability of High-Temperature Aerospace Materials
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.
