Award Amount: $99,994.00
 

Abstract:

A material which is stronger than conventional aluminum, less permeable to liquid hydrogen than polymer matrix composites (PMCs), less flammable that PMCs in the presence of liquid oxygen, and can be made into large, complex shapes without an autoclave, would have a significant advantage over current cryogenic tank materials. Touchstone Research Laboratory proposes its the solution to this problem. This material would have several advantages of PMCs and conventional aluminum for cryogenic tanks: material would reduces the tank weight without adding the flammability and permeability problems associated with PMCs. Also it does not need an autoclave for processing.
