Title: CERAMIC COVERED TURBINE COMPONENTS
Abstract:
A component for a gas turbine engine comprises an underlying substrate. A plurality of ceramic panels have intermediate thermal expansion joints bonded by a bond layer to the underlying substrate. The thermal expansion joints are formed of a material having a greater coefficient of expansion than a material forming the ceramic panels. The ceramic panels and the thermal expansion joints are positioned to define an outer surface for the component. A gas turbine engine and a component for a gas turbine engine are also disclosed.
