Novel high temperature resistant materials


Learn more about novelties in the field of metallic high temperature materials and protection systems.

On 22. and 23. March 2011 a Technikforum organised by

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Tilmann Beck
Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH
Institut für Werkstoffstruktur und -Eigenschaften

will take place in Düsseldorf within the frame of the VDI Wissensforum covering the topic

Novel high temperature resistant materials

You will learn about:

  • specific loading conditions for high temperature materials in steam and gas turbines
  • how loading conditions influence the materials choice
  • new developments in the field of steels for high-temperature steam turbines and vessels
  • alloys for combustion chambers, rotors and blades for gas turbines for power plants and aircraft engines
  • possibilities to increase the efficiency of gas tubines by protection layer systems
  • time efficiency increase in the development of high temperature components using simulation tools
