I have been researching DIY gas turbines lately, and I have concluded that I want to make one. My only issue is that all amateur designs I have seen use turbochargers. I would like to see an axial, multi-stage compressor/turbine design. Obviously this would require one to fabricate the blades yourself, but I believe it can be done. In fact, I have thought of an idea that may work, but I'm no expert, so I would like some more input. My idea is that each blade would be made by casting it out of a 2-part ceramic casting compound, specifically one designed to withstand high-temperatures once cured. This way, you would be able to form the blade to whatever shape you wanted without high-temperature metal casting. Next, the ceramic blade would be layered in carbon fiber/resin layers to increase its tensile strength. I believe my idea would work, given the fact that the ceramics can withstand nearly 4000 degrees (Fahrenheit) in some cases, and the strength of hardened carbon fiber. However, my only concern is that the high temperatures in the engine may cause the epoxy in the carbon fiber to break down. Would this idea work?
