Project summaryAlongside with the continued development and perfection of technology, the demands set out for new technological equipment and its operations are constantly increasing (increased speed, temperatures, enlarged loads, hostile environment, weight decreasing and so on). The solution of these purposes are closely associated with manufacturing of highly efficient composite materials.
The application of mechanical mixtures for these purposes is accompanied by considerable drawbacks, the main of which is the components segregation while mixing, transportation of said mixtures from measuring devices to a jet, as well as in the process of spraying protective layers. Segregation of components leads to non-uniform formation of structure, and as the consequence to formation of non-uniform composition and structure that in its turn fails to obtain a commodity with designed tensile and operational specifications.
The purpose of the Project is the development of technology fundamentals of the formation process for cladding metal-ceramic powders, composition and structure control procedures, aimed at creating a composite materials with pre-set technological and operational features.
The International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) is an intergovernmental organization connecting scientists from Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Georgia with their peers and research organizations in the EU, Japan, Republic of Korea, Norway and the United States.
ISTC facilitates international science projects and assists the global scientific and business community to source and engage with CIS and Georgian institutes that develop or possess an excellence of scientific know-how.
