The key technology requirement for advanced gas turbine engines is the availability of lightweight, higher temperature materials which will allow the components to operate with little or no cooling air. Ceramic Matrix Composites represent one such category. An interturbine duct has been selected as the first component for introducing silicon carbide fiber reinforced silicon nitride composites in advanced engines.

An ongoing program is focused on process development, fabrication of components and measurement of mechanical properties. A significant property base continues to be developed for both uni-directional and multi-directional reinforced ceramic composites. The results of the program are presented.
