Summary

Under DOE/NASA sponsorship (Contract DEN3-167), a Garrett/Ford team is developing the AGT101, a highly efficient gas turbine engine for automotive application. The regenerated engine will operate at a maximum of 1370 °C (2500 °F) and 100000 rpm, and will utilize a variety ofSi3N4, SiC, lithium aluminum silicate and ceramic fiber insulation components. Engine design has been performed to consider the fabrication and material characteristics of these ceramic materials for both the static and rotating hot section components. Component fabrication has been performed, components have been screened in thermal and mechanical tests, and initial engine testing has been performed.
