This Workshop will convey all aspects in the processing of MAX phases, with special attention on application-driven chemical & microstructural optimisation. Also emphasis will be put on the relation between MAX phase composition (including solid solutions) & microstructure with in-service mechanical performance. Setting the scene for the development of MAX phase-based material designed for harsh environments (irradiation, corrosive media, high temperatures & pressures) will primarily be based on the state-of-the-art know-how on bulk MAX phase materials, extrapolating in the field of applications requiring the deposition of coatings to ensure the protection of a substrate. This Workshop will be organised at UP (long-standing experience in MAX phase production & characterisation) and lectures will be given by top MAX phase experts in the Consortium (DU, KU Leuven, SCK•CEN, ICL, UCAM, UoM, UoH, UP, RWTH) and industries (SHT).
This Workshop will cover aspects of the surface engineering technologies (coatings & surface modification) used in the project, providing a basic background on thin film physics. The specific characteristics and limitations of the coating technologies (magnetron sputtering, cathodic arc deposition, cold spraying, pulsed laser deposition) and the GESA surface modification process considered in IL TROVATORE will be addressed, including state-of-the-art interface engineering approaches for particular systems. This Workshop will be organised at KIT (GESA process development and upscaling to 1 m-long tubes) and lectures will be given by top experts in the field of thin film and surface engineering technologies (RWTH, LiU, HSU, IIT, KIT) and industries (PLANSEE, HAUZER).
Background study; codes, models & parameters for n-damage in SiC and PyC/SiC; thermodynamic stability of coating alloys and coated clad systems; ab initio models on coating thermomechanical and chemical stability, n-induced defect microstructures, etc.; in-service damage evolution
Establishment of a material-specific TEM specimen preparation protocol for ion/proton-irradiated materials
An existing MISTRAL rig design (able to irradiate in the 250-350C range) will be adapted to meet the project goals, taking into account the materials to be irradiated (i.e., chemical composition, density, specimen geometry)
Identify standardisation activities and suggest associated implementation plan
Detailed communication action plan considering the suggestions of all involved parties
Since IL TROVATORE participates to the Open Research Data Pilot, the first draft of the Data Management Plan (DMP) must be submitted to the EC within the first 6 months of the project. The DMP will evolve during the project, until a mature data management policy is established during the project lifetime.
