The consortium consists of four partners from three countries: Thermo-Calc Software AB (TCSAB), Sweden (Coordinator); Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung GmbH (MPIE), Germany; Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht Zentrum für Material- und Küstenforschung GmbH (HZG), Germany; and Montanuniversität Leoben (MUL), Austria. In addition, MTU Aero Engines AG, Germany, is the Topic Manager.
ADVANCE is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and is part of the Clean Sky 2 joint undertaking. The Clean Sky 2 goals are to reduce aircraft noise and CO2 and NOx emissions, which is a vital part of several initiatives that have a focus on fostering new technologies to make tomorrow’s aircraft greener and more efficient.
New TiAl Alloys CALPHAD Databases
At the completion of this project, the next generation of advanced CALPHAD databases (one thermodynamic and a compatible kinetic database for atomic mobility) for TiAl alloys will be available. Use of these databases in combination with the appropriate simulation software will contribute to the ability to decrease costs and development time for TiAl alloy design, which ultimately contributes to the Clean Sky 2 environmental mandate of ‘’Smart, Green, Integrated Transport’’.
