This MQP group set out to modify an existing model for predicting thermal-barrier coating thickness on a flat plate. Sponsored by Pratt & Whitney, a leading aircraft engine manufacturer in East Hartford, Conn., we combined onsite experimental design with on-campus scientific analysis. The short-term goal of this project is to design and analyze a predictive model for shadowed-coating profiles. This will contribute greatly to WPI's joint venture with Pratt & Whitney to create a rules-based software program that can predict the coating thickness on any modeled shape.
