Repair Operations of Engine-Run Turbine Airfoils and Future Challenges in Superalloy Materials

Date: Sunday, September 8, 2024
Time: 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

The increasing number of civil and executive engines already in use and those to come require maintenance, repair, and overhaul activities to contain costs and make them more sustainable. Furthermore, the increasing operating temperatures in even harsher environments lower the lifetime of turbine components. After a short introduction to the topic, this short course will cover current engineering operations to refurbish, clean, FIC, patch and braze, redimension, and rejuvenation. Current challenges including e.g., REACh regulation, cleaner coatings, and potential use of additive manufacturing to improve service life will be commented. Some examples of the mechanical/environmental resistance of repaired components will also be given.
