Efficiency and emissions of advanced gas turbine power cycles can be improved by incorporating high-temperature ceramic heat exchangers (see Figure 1). In cooperation with the DOE, preliminary development and testing of SiC based structures has been completed. This program has focused on four initial areas: thermo-mechanical degradation as a function of the chemical operating environments, design of a layered microchannel heat exchanger, thermo-mechanical testing and analysis of these structures, and fabrication development through rapid prototyping techniques.
