SME Specific MeasuresEnergy, Environment and Sustainable Development

Exploratory Award

Proposal number EXAW-1999-01449

AcronymTOSCA

Proposal titleToughened structural ceramics for high temperature and corrosive applications.

New material and structural designs for maximizing the energy efficiency in

power generation and heating

AbstractObjectives f the project are to develop and test tailored ceramic composite materials and

structures for use in corrosive flue gas environment up to 1200C in power plants. primarily

waste incineration plants. The new designs enables an efficiency increase in power

plants where efficiency today is limited by high temperature corrosion. The composite

ceramics material and structural technology are based on patented Giantcode inventions

on achieving combinations of strength, stiffness, ductility and fracture toughness that are

far superior to what are achievable by traditional ceramics. Giantcode's engineering tools

and technology, combined with the expert knowledge of Elsamprojekt, are the basis of the

design work. Manufacturing methods will be investigated by NN (SME partner identified as

part of the exploratory award. Dutch companies are being evaluated). SME partner

SimTech will contribute with expertise in simulation and analysis of material and structural

performance under extreme loading and environmenta conditions. Full scale test of

promising materials and structures will be performed in one of ELSAM's waste incineration

plants.
