    ... ceramic blades?? Is it the same stuff the Ming guards were made of?? Maybe it was terracotta?? Wonder if it's the same as what the dolls are made of?? I know ceramic knives are sharp! I wonder if the "regulator" is going to accept their standards for this design? ImI sure they will knuckle under and accept it without question!!

    This engine is being developed in China so their Governmet will approve it because they own their regulator and the company building the engine. Right off the bat I wonder how ceramic blades will hold up to damage?

    ...I would love to see the "bird strike" testing! Maybe the ceramic will chop them up like "ginsu" knives? You could make a lot of Peking duck!!

    There are a lot of unknowns with this design.

    Ceramic core material......large hollow blades? .....how about FOD damage and extreme temperature changes. The last Fan blade design was carbon fiber and titanium leading edges.......so why Ceramic core....A Chinese engine produced in China and I still say they will never get a handle on their quality control problems. ;)

    BTW supposedly FAA accepts Chinese certification standards.....Really!!

    New Carbon fiber design.....Better then ceramic core cast metal blades?

    BTW....The Chinese ceramic core blade technology is so new it will take years to flight test these engines to be used anywhere else but China. At first I though the blades were ceramic, however the process is using ceramic cores to actually cast a metal composite to create the blade....Interesting!!!

    One of them will be an out of balance condition from the material's inside casting roughness unless it can be machined/smoothened/removed. It is a closed end part, so extrude honing won't be an available process used by High flow automotive intake castings like Ford uses.

    Perhaps, but Japan has this technology too.
