In the Ceramic Stationary Gas Turbine (CSGT) development program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Offices of Industrial Technologies and Power Technologies (OIT/OPT), monolithic silicon nitride and silicon carbide ceramics were evaluated for application as structural materials for hot section components in an industrial gas turbine, the Solar Centaur 50S. First generation blades of GN10, NT164, and SN253 silicon nitrides, second generation blades of AS800 and SN281 silicon nitrides, and first generation SN-88 silicon nitride nozzles were evaluated in rigs and test engines. Hexoloy SA silicon carbide combustor liner tiles were tested in a subscale rig. The selection and evaluation of monolithic materials over the duration of the CSGT program (1992 to 2000) will be reviewed.
