Topic(s):JTI-CS-2010-4-SAGE-04-002 - Development of near net shape isothermal forging process for gamma-TiAl low pressure turbine blades
Call for proposal:SP1-JTI-CS-2010-04See other projects for this call
Funding scheme:JTI-CS - Joint Technology Initiatives - Clean Sky
"The proposal consists in developing an alternative solution to the existing LPT blade on the Geared Turbo Fan made of cast nickel based alloy by transcending the work fundamentally performed on the TNM Gamma TiAl alloy.
This proposal is beyond the state of the art and is based on innovative isothermal forging process , advanced tooling devices, specific heat treatments and an optimized near net shape geometry.
Bringing together these conditions is mandatory to meet the engine manufacturer requirements in terms of microstructure and associated mechanical properties but also to target the cost challenge in the scope of a mass production activity.
Following RTD and Demonstration activities are to be performed through the project :
-development of isothermal forging process parameters
-development of innovative toolings for the isothermal forging process
-development of optimized billet and blade designs for the isothermal forging process
-test hardware manufacturing"
