Extreme temperatures in gas turbines give rise to need for heat-resistant materials

Tuesday April 03, 2018

Temperatures in the next generation of gas turbines are expected to reach as high as 3100 degrees Fahrenheit, heat so extreme it could literally vaporize components under high velocity steam. The challenge for engineers is to create components that can withstand the high-temperature steam corrosion. If they can, gas turbines will run more efficiently, saving money and creating fewer greenhouse gases. It’s a task bringing together GE Power and Clemson University engineers, who have launched a new research project with $600,000 from the U.S. Department of Energy.


Dr. Marek Urban has been elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry for his pioneering contributions to polymer and macromolecular science.
