New Generation Ultra-High Temperature Ceramic Matrix Composites for Aerospace Industry
New Generation Ultra-High Temperature Ceramic Matrix Composites for Aerospace Industry
Program: Horizon 2020
Project leader: Ing. Tatarko Peter PhD.
Annotation:This multidisciplinary industrially oriented research proposal brings together very timely and highly original fundamental research with a commercial potential for aerospace applications, aimed at improving the lifetime and reliability of ceramics performing in extreme conditions. The use of a new type of additives, such as rare-earth (RE) oxides with a small ionic radius of RE3+, combined with the use of new processing routes (new coating technique), opens up the possibility of developing new generation ultra-high temperature ceramic matrix composites (UHTCMCs). The project will push the boundaries of knowledge forward towards understanding the influence of RE additives on the properties of UHTCMCs by performing a systematic study using RE elements with different RE3+. Besides the new style of additives (RE), the project proposes new and innovative coating technique to develop new compositions of RE-ultra-high temperature ceramics (REUHTC) coatings for ceramic matrix composites (CMC). In this way, the final RE-UHTCMCs will be developed. The ultimate aim of the project is to develop novel RE-reinforced UHTCMC materials with significantly improved ultra-high temperature properties (above 2200°C) and long-term (up to several hours) thermo-chemical resistance. This will significantly improve the current state of the art. The application of these materials as thermal protection systems for hypersonic vehicles, and other areas of aerospace industry, is foreseen through the knowledge transfer to the industrial partner, Central R&T Airbus Defence and Space GmbH. This innovative scientific programme will provide an advanced training for the Fellow. Due to the involvement of one of the global leaders in aerospace industry (Airbus Defence and Space) into this proposal, the project will generate patents, industrial property rights, and high quality publications. This all will contribute to further personal development and international scientific recognition of the Fellow.

Joining of advanced SiC-based ceramic materials
Spájanie moderných keramických materiálov na báze SiC
Program: Bilateral - other
Project leader: Ing. Tatarko Peter PhD.
Annotation:The main aim of the project is to develop collaboration between participated researchers in the field of joining of advanced SiC-based materials. This collaboration will contribute to the understanding of the role of different joining materials for reaction and solid-state diffusion bonding with a SiC matrix. A purpose of the project is to enable the utilization of the laboratory equipment during the research stays for young scientists and PhD students from both partner institutes, i.e. Department of ceramics, Institute of Inorganic Chemistry (IICH) Slovak Academy of Sciences in Bratislava and Chinese partner Specialty Fibers and Nuclear Energy Materials Engineering Laboratory, Ningbo institute of Material Technology and Engineering (NIMTE), Chinese Academy of Sciences, China. Moreover, the project will contribute to the development of the collaboration between young researchers and PhD students. Common interest (joining of SiC) but different expertise and research approaches of both groups is very promising for the innovative solutions of the scientific problems. Therefore, mutual project represents a synergy in the activities of both institutions leading to an optimal utilization of the capacity of both partners. In addition, the exchange of experiences and knowledge in the investigated area of material research is anticipated resulting in the improved quality of the outputs of the project as well as the enhanced qualification of the young researchers and PhD students. It is expected that this newly established collaboration could contribute to the development of a new joining technique for different monolithic SiC materials that would be appropriate for both aerospace and nuclear applications where the component geometry allows.

Development of new advanced ceramic composites for aerospace industry
Vývoj nových pokročilých keramických kompozitov pre vesmírne aplikácie
Program: Inter-academic agreement
Project leader: Ing. Tatarko Peter PhD.
Annotation:The main aim of the project is to strengthen the collaboration between two principal investigators in the field of the development of ultra-high temperature ceramics. This collaboration will lead to understanding of the influence of different rare-earth additives on the densification and mechanical properties of new ultra-high temperature ceramics. A purpose of the project is to enable the utilization of the laboratory equipmentfor the researchers from both partner groups. The project will contribute to the development of collaboration between young researchers. A difference between the researchorientations of the individual group is very promising for the innovative solutions of scientific problems. Mutual project represents a synergy in the activities of both institutions leading to an optimal utilization of the capacity of both partners. In addition, the exchange of “know-how” in the investigated area of material research will ensure the improved quality of the outputs of the project and the enhanced qualification of young researchers and PhD students.

Program: Bilateral - other
Project leader: Ing. Tatarko Peter PhD.
Annotation:The use of a new type of additives, combined with the use of new processing routes, opens up the possibility of developing new ultra-high temperature ceramic matrix composites (UHTCMC) with potentially improved oxidation and ablation properties. This multidisciplinary industrially oriented research proposal brings together very timely and highly original fundamental research with a commercial potential for aerospace applications, aimed at improving the lifetime and reliability of ceramics performing in extreme conditions. The ultimate aim of the project is to develop new ultra-high temperature ceramic coatings (UHTC) for ceramic matrix composites (CMC), such as Cf/SiC, SiCf/SiC and Cf/C using an innovative approach. It is expected that final materials (the combination of UHTC with CMC -UHTCMCs) will possess the significantly improved ultra-high temperature properties and long-term (up to several hours) thermo-chemical resistance. This will bring new knowledge in the fundamental research in the field and fulfil a commercial potential of these materials to be applied as Thermal Protection Systems of hypersonic and atmospheric re-entry vehicles, as well as different parts of different propulsion systems.
