Oxide-Oxide CMCs for Aircraft Brake Friction Materials
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
We propose to demonstrate that oxide-oxide composites are the preferred material of choice for use as brake friction materials in aircrafts. We will demonstrate that oxide-oxide composites that are 90% dense can be fabricated at low cost and that this material has higher specific heat per unit volume and better balance of thermo-mechanical properties than other competing non-oxide materials. Further we will demonstrate that these materials perform satisfactorily as brake disks using sub-scale dynamometer tests with the help of an end-user as collaborator.
