TECHNICAL ABSTRACT (Limit 2000 characters, approximately 200 words)
This project will develop innovative composite powders and composites that will surpass the properties of currently identified materials for advanced gas turbine engine applications. Phase I will demonstrate a powder metallurgy technique for fabricating high-temperature, oxidation-resistant composite powders. Once consolidated, the resulting composite will possess high creep and thermal fatigue strength, and a low coefficient of thermal expansion properties.

POTENTIAL NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
Casing materials gas turbine vanes, turbine blade, sheets for use in oxidizing/corrosive atmosphere, nozzle

POTENTIAL NON-NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
Power plant unit, boilers, diesel engines and stationary gas and steam turbines at a potentially much lower cost sheets for oxidizing atmosphere, Land base gas turbine engine.The composite powders also should find application in thermal-sprayed or cold-sprayed steam oxidation, corrosion-resistant high-temperature coatings for retrofitting existing fossil-fired power plant equipment, and laser additives manufacturing for turbine engine/blade repairing or refurbishing.
