The application of ceramic components in gas turbine engines enables the improvement of the power output and the efficiency of gas turbines by increasing the turbine inlet temperature. The high temperature properties of the ceramic materials offer the potential of higher turbine operating temperatures with no cooling techniques and therefore the ceramic components with higher temperature limits are becoming more attractive. In this study, the ceramic turbine wheel is applied in the aircraft gas turbine engine and the engine testing is demonstrated under full load operating conditions. The successful testing of the ceramic turbine components in the aircraft gas turbine engine has been accomplished. The test results indicate that the ceramic turbine wheel is capable of operating under the high thermal shock condition of fast starting to full speed. Furthermore, the adoption of some new ceramic turbine design concepts is proposed in actual use for aircraft ceramic turbine engines.
