DOD / NAVY
The objective of this proposed Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) effort is to develop an experimentally-validated, highly detailed chemical kinetic reference model of surface chemistry for C-SiC-SiO2 rubber composite materials exposed to high temperature, high pressure, oxidizing environments. This reference model will then be reduced into simplified reduced-order models that could be easily coupled with existing analysis tools for multicomponent materials design. We propose to accomplish this goal using a combination of detailed mechanistic modeling and computational quantum chemistry to comprehensively characterize surface chemistry for C-SiC-SiO2 rubber composite materials.
