Development, characterization and evaluation of materials for open cycle MHD. Quarterly report for the period ending December 1978

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The objectives of this program are to develop, test, characterize, and evaluate materials for open-cycle, coal-fired MHD power generators. The specific immediate goals emphasize electrode and insulator materials, including: (1) testing and evaluation of the enhanced effects of alkali seed on materials in a dc electric field; (2) development and testing of improved electrodes and insulators with controlled microstructures, compositions and properties; and (3) characterization and evaluation of materials relating to both the US MHD Program and the US-USSR Cooperative Program for MHD power generators. The scope of this program encompasses the following areas: (1) reproducible laboratory testing of both ... continued below

Description

The objectives of this program are to develop, test, characterize, and evaluate materials for open-cycle, coal-fired MHD power generators. The specific immediate goals emphasize electrode and insulator materials, including: (1) testing and evaluation of the enhanced effects of alkali seed on materials in a dc electric field; (2) development and testing of improved electrodes and insulators with controlled microstructures, compositions and properties; and (3) characterization and evaluation of materials relating to both the US MHD Program and the US-USSR Cooperative Program for MHD power generators. The scope of this program encompasses the following areas: (1) reproducible laboratory testing of both ceramic and metal electrode materials and insulator materials in alkali seed/slag under dc electric current and voltages, as functions of temperature, and seed/slag composition; (2) development and fabrication of electrodes, insulators, and other related materials with controlled electrical, chemical, and physical properties, including evaluation in laboratory tests in US MHD test facilities and as part of the US-USSR testing program; and (3) characterization and evaluation of materials tested under the US-USSR and the US MHD programs including the measurement and analysis of structural, chemical, and thermophysical properties of electrodes, insulators, slag, and other related materials before and after testing. Progress is reported.
