Meet the consortium
Acting Project Coordinator, the Department of Civil and Industrial Engineering of the University of Pisa (DICI-UNIPI) is also leading WP3 for the optimization of Microwave-assisted Chemical Vapour Infiltration (MW-CVI) processes for oxide and non-oxide Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs).
The Laboratory for Thermo Structural Composites of the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) engages in several tasks related to materials’ thermal efficiency, modelling of MW-CVI processes, measurement of thermal conductivity and emissivity, as well as the evaluation of CMCs samples in biogas environments.
Starting from the risks assessment, Steinbeis Advanced Risk Technologies (R-Tech) is responsible for all business intelligence related to and the evaluation of the environmental and economic aspects of the project’s life cycle assessment and life-cycle costing. It also works on standardization opportunities, especially related to new nanomaterials, devices and components.
Torino’s Polytechnic Institute (POLITO) leads WP6 on joining and coating CMCs samples and contributes to various other WPs, such as the set-up of preform materials for MW-CVI processes (WP1), the optimization of the MW-CVI process for oxide and non-oxide CMCs (WP3), the characterization of joined components (WP4), the testing and validation of CMCs prototypes (WP7), the Lifecycle ad Risks Assessments (WP8), as well as the results’ dissemination, communication and exploitation (WP9).
