Abstract:

Non-eroding missile control fin materials can provide significant increases in the precision of positioning systems for missiles, as well as for improved predictability of the behavior of these systems. The proper combination of materials and reinforcement geometries can provide low eroding material within the flame exhaust, plus thermostructural capability to withstand the severe thermal gradients. This program will investigate the combinations of materials and reinforcement geometries which can provide thermal matching between material surfaces, low processig risks, and reliable material behavior in the flight control system. Hybrids, plus variable reinforcement weave geometries, will be investigated analytically and experimentally to determine an optimum material configuration to then be pursued experimentally.
