Development of Novel Particle Impact Tester for Oxygen Rich Turbo Machinery Materials and Coating Evaluation

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

Development of Novel Particle Impact Tester for Oxygen Rich Turbo Machinery Materials and Coating Evaluation
The need to develop a test system that can validate material choices in relevant environments is crucial to making robust high performance engine designs, and decrease risk. With this project we propose a ignition test bed capable of providing relevant test conditions (Pressure, Temperature, Velocity, Concentration). A modular subscale oxygen rich preburner based particle impact test system would provide the opportunity to create relevant ox rich environments with various fuels (RP1, Hydrogen, Methane, CNG) with LOX, encompassing the current design envelops of many development projects. A modular design would allow great flexibility not only in environmental the conditions used for testing mixed gas, but also with 100% oxygen testing as well. For example a heat exchanger module could allow for heating LOX, up to high pressure/ high temperature GOX for testing other 100% oxygen engine component candidate materials at conditions that exceed current test capabilities.
