Fabrication and Process Optimization of Thick Laminates from Carbon Fiber/Polyimide Composites
ABSTRACT: The overall objective of the proposed SBIR program is to rapidly advance and optimize the manufacturing of dual-use carbon fiber/polyimide matrix composites with high thermo-oxidative stability (TOS) for use in aircraft components with service temperatures exceeding those of PMR-15. This objective will be achieved through the development and validation of predictive thermosetting polyimide process models and manufacturing robustness demonstration for two, commercially available, state-of-the-art materials of interest, requested by the high temperature composites community. The technology developed will be made available directly to all high temperature composite structure manufacturers, and material process models integrated into commercial modeling software. BENEFIT: The proposed program will directly impact manufacturing of polyimide matrix composite structures used in commercial and military aircraft applications.
