High Temperature Materials

This third issue of Aerospace Lab is dedicated to High Temperature Materials. This is a class of materials that has been at the forefront of research and development for almost fifty years at ONERA. A number of new materials and processes were invented and world class research was performed throughout these years. Concurrently, great progress has been made in the mechanics of materials to facilitate lifing analysis. However, these aspects are not presented in this issue. The focus here is on materials for propulsion, especially in the hot section of the turbines. These materials cover a large variety of applications and many of them are already being used, especially in aircraft engines. The purpose of the papers published in this issue is to illustrate the state-of-the art, the progress made and the future prospects for such materials and systems in propulsion systems.
