Technological Innovations in Metals Engineering


The aim of this paper is to briefly analyze different methodologies for development of novel materials systems and coatings for use in extreme environments, with a focus on high-temperature applications in aerospace and aeronautics. The approach is based on a comparative analysis of selected major thermal stability properties of different material systems (mainly transition-metal oxides and carbides) used in thermal protection systems and how different existing coating methods can be used as best available technologies to implement these new materials in high-temperature coatings. Finally, an original example of high-temperature coatings based on barium and lanthanum zirconates with perovskite structure obtained by electron beam vapor deposition is presented.



Financial support from H2020 Grant Agreement TWINNING 692216 “The Virtual Center for Sustainable Development of Advanced Materials Operating under Extreme Conditions” (SUPERMAT) and COST Action 15102 “Solutions for Critical Raw Materials under Extreme Conditions” is acknowledged. R.R.P. and A.S. also acknowledge financial support from the grant of the Romanian Ministry of Research and Innovation, RDI Program for Space Technology and Advanced Research - STAR, project number 528 (Androtech) and Core Program 1807/2018 Emernef with support from MCI.
