Abstract:

PROTECTION OF EXOATMOSPHERIC SYSTEMS AND STRUCTURES FROM NUCLEAR EFFECTS IS REQUIRED. THE MATERIAL CANDIDATE FOR THIS TYPE OF PROTECTION IS A CARBON-CARBON COMPOSITE FOR STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY AND TUNGSTEN CARBIDE COMPONENT FOR NUCLEAR HARDENING. THE CARBON-CARBON COMBINES A HIGH STRENGTH-TO-WEIGHT RATIO IN AN INTEGRAL STRUCTURAL COMPOSITE CAPABLE OF NUCLEAR HARDENING BY THE ADDITION OF TUNGSTEN CARBIDE. THE TECHNIQUE FOR ADDING THE TUNGSTEN CARBIDE INVOLVES REITERATIVE IMPREGNATIONS WITH AN AMMONIUM TUNGSTATE-PHENOLIC RESIN SOLUTION FOLLOWED BY TYPICAL DENSIFICATION CYCLES. EVALUATION OF THIS MATERIAL WILL BE CONDUCTED THROUGH THERMAL DIFFUSIVITY AND SCANNING ELECTRON MICROGRAPHY OF THE TUNGSTEN CARBIDE-CARBON MATRIX.
