Seawater gas turbine engines A gas turbine engine blade is a specific component that develops the turbine section of a gas turbine engine. The blades receive energy from the elevated temperatures; a combustor releases gas at high temperature. The blades are usually a limited component of gas turbines. To operate in this severe condition, turbine … Continue reading Aero and marine engine turbine components

The corrosion nature of metals in marine water is influenced by natural factors related with specific marine conditions. The more crucial factors are temperature, dissolved oxygen, marine organisms and velocity. It is tough to isolate the effects of these factors in the nature seawater tests due to effect of the uncontrollable conditions for example weather, … Continue reading Useful Alloys for marine environments
