Ceramic components are the key to gas turbines having higher thermal efficiencies and greater specific power outputs than designs that relay solely on cooled metal components. Because of the superior oxidation-sulfidation resistance of ceramics, additional economic benefits can result from the use of lowcost, nondistillate fuels. A program for developing ceramic vanes for a large stationary gas turbine will be discussed in terms of the design and material requirements.
