Abstract:

Not Available Foster-Miller, Inc. with their team members will evaluate and demonstrate the potential uses of continuous fiber reinforced hafnium carbide composites for larger scale TPS and leading edge components for the next generation of reentry and hypersonic vehicles. Foster-Miller has demonstrated fabrication of ceramic matrix composite components via the low cost and net shape preceramic polymer route. We propose using this approach to produce CMC specimens and test them under simulated service conditions. This will be followed by fabrication of a TPS demo article for characterization. Our team includes a major aerospace systems integration partner who has identified improved and cost-effective TPS as a key enabling technology for several near term aerospace systems. The follow-on Phase II program will involve scale-up and demonstration of repeatability in properties and development of a model that correlates materials level properties to component level performance.
