'"Alpha STAR's GENOA and MCQ-Composites have given us the edge in safely designing ceramic hot engine components subject to engine environments. Verifications with coupons, elements and components subject to temperature, creep, fatigue, micro-cracking, fiber rupture, recession, and for certain materials oxidation, and thermal & environmental barrier coatings have all been performed. In-situ damages are accurately assessed at the micromechanical material level with MCQ Ceramics and can be tracked with GENOA at the structural level accounting for specific architecture, defects, and manufacturing residual stresses and other anomalies."'
