Symposium Advanced Protective Coatings for Refractory Metals and Alloys

Scope The need for higher energy efficiency in turbine engines and boilers demands a higher operating temperature. While refractory metal-based alloys, ie molybdenum and niobium-based alloys, offer a unique set of favorable materials properties, ie higher melting temperatures and superior high-temperature strengths, the main limiting factor to their full potential utility remains the poor corrosion/oxidation resistance of these alloys. Over the last decade, there has been a tremendous growth of research in protective coatings for refractory metal/alloys, ie those that are based on silicides, borosilicides and aluminides. These new types of coatings have recently been quite successful in addressing the issue. The symposium is intended to facilitate the accumulated knowledge gained over these years regarding protective coatings that extend the lifetime of refractory metals utility at higher temperatures under aggressive environments. In particular the symposium is aimed at addressing some of the most difficult aspects that pertain to a successful integration of these coatings into the base refractory materials: (1) mechanical compatibility (CTE mismatch, micro-texture effect), (2) thermodynamics and kinetics factors (coating lifetime predictions, metalloid diffusion into the substrate), (3) modification of the materials properties of the coating constituents to match the base metals through graded coating structures or alloying design (theoretical as well as experimental) and (4) performance of the different types of coatings under aggressive environments (silicides versus aluminides, effect of high-steam temperature environments, cyclic conditions). As the successes of the protective coatings are strongly linked to the performance of the base refractory metals, the symposium will also focus on highlighting the recent development in enhanced corrosion and oxidation resistance of the refractory metals and its relevant factors such as dopants/alloying elements and microstructures.
