Ferritic high performance steels for the German "Energiewende"

The development of materials for flexible thermal power plants of the future breaks new ground. High performance ferritic stainless steels, developed at IEK-2, surpass the creep strength and corrosion resistance of conventional materials and also provide improved thermomechanical fatigue resistance.

Thermal barrier coatings

Gas turbine blades are coated with ZrO2 thermal barrier coatings. Stresses lead to formation and growth of delamination cracks underneath the surface and finally to spaliation of the coating. Thermography visualizes the cracks with a detection limit of 0.7 mm width and 1 μm lift-off. More: Thermal barrier coatings …

Thermo-mechanical Characterisation of Emission-Reduced Refractories

Thermo-mechanical Characterisation of Emission-Reduced Refractories

Novel, carbon-reduced and carbon-free refractory materials are developed within the DFG project “FIRE”. The work in Juelich is focussed on innovative testing methods for the thermo-mechanical characterisation. Investigations on the mechanism of crack growth and crack resistance as well as thermal shock experiments are carried out More: Thermo-mechanical Characterisation of Emission-Reduced Refractories …
