Ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) are used for critical components that operate in high temperature environments enabling one to increase the power, performance and efficiency of turbine engines and other aerospace applications; however, existing test methods for CMCs are expensive, unreliable and often fail to capture critical behavior. Alpha STAR, a global provider of physics based simulation technologies and services has developed, with the University of Akron, reliable, repeatable test protocols, specimen designs, and multi-scale material modeling and simulation tools to measure and predict the behavior of CMCs in order to produce more reliable, more efficient parts in a timelier and cost-effective manner. Alpha STAR seeks to transition this to interested program offices for CMC propulsion applications for validation and certification testing, enabling the U.S. Navy and commercial OEMs to reduce life cycle costs.
