Prediction of the life time behaviour for c/c-sic tubes as high and ultrahigh temperature heat exchangers (HITHEX)

Objective

The project will be used to demonstrate the applicability of structural CMC components for high and ultra high heat exchangers . Such heat exchangers are required to realize new power generation plants based on EXTERNAL FIRED COMBUSTION CYCLES (EFCC) or INDIRECT FIRED GAS TURBINES (IFGT) .The application limits will be determined for different oxidation protected C/C-Sic parts developed in a previous project .Life time behavior models will be created based on creep curves under different environments .The materials and structural components will be further improved based on the intermediate evaluation . Furthermore, new test methods will be developed, applied and standardized to measure directly on structural components and not only on model samples . The test methods will be evaluated in comparison to standardized tests according EN on samples .
