The main Objective of the Project is to create a world-wide network for development and implementation of new international standards for testing of barrier coatings, including thermal barrier coatings (TBC) for different applications, in particularly for power generation and transport.
This target will be achieved via intermediate objectives:
- setting up a network of Research Institutions and Industrial Partners carrying out worldwide research activities in the field of integrated, holistic design, modelling, production and application of innovative barrier coatings;
- development of respective modeling, simulation and experimental testing tools, both conventional (analytical, FEM) and innovative (hot burner test, thermosonimetry etc.), in order to make quantitative prediction of lifetime of barrier coatings for different conditions;
- preparation respective ISO drafts and proposals for a worldwide recognition based on integrated chain “design & modeling à manufacturing à testing for improvement” (DEMMATEST approach)
- supply this innovative knowledge of new testing methods to specialists and engineers and disseminating the coherent .
These actions will finally lead to an efficient exchange of information and knowledge among Partners having, in their respective region, a key role in barrier coatings and their DEMMATEST for products sustainability, performance and safety, leading to new potential breakthroughs in respective fields.
