This series of 8 lectures provides an overview on research and development of aeronautical materials, especially those intended for construction of turbine engines that propel the civil and military aircraft. To ensure continued progress demanded by the industries concerned, metal science plays a major role, since no other materials can fulfill the requirements for their operations (severe mechanical stress, increasingly higher temperatures and corrosive and oxidizing environment).
By presenting the current state of technology and examples of research activity to prepare the future, the aim of these lectures is to allow each student to refresh his or her knowledge already acquired in the field of metal science.
aeronautical materials, turbomachinery, metallic alloys, high-temperature and light-weight, structural applications
The examples of research activities that will be mentioned were chosen mostly among the activities that I had directly exercised during my professional career.
