In 1974 in Germany a research program was initiated under sponsorship of the Ministry of Research and Technology for developing ceramic components for vehicular gas turbines. Participants were Daimler-Benz, Motoren- and Turbinen-Union and Volkswagen and a number of ceramic companies and research institutes.

The paper gives the achieved development-status of the following components: combustion-chamber, nozzles and two types of rotors. Furtheron some results of investigations in regard of durability of silicon nitride and silicon carbide are presented.
