Abstract:

THE ABILITY TO FABRICATE CERAMIC ARMOR ECONOMICALLY IS DEPENDENT UPON SEVERAL FACTORS INCLUDING POWDER COST, FABRICATION TECHNIQUE, AND FINAL MACHINE COST. CANDIDATE CERAMIC SUCH AS TIB (2), AND B (4)C DO NOT SINTER TO FULL DENSITY. THEREFORE, NEAR-NET SHAPE FORMATION IS DIFFICULT AND EXPENSIVE, ESPECIALLY WHERE COMPLEX GEOMETRIES ARE INVOLVED. ART PROPOSES TO UTILIZE NEW POWDER SYNTHESIS TECHNOLOGY TO PRODUCE SINTERABLE CERAMIC POWDER FOR USE AS ARMOR MATERIALS. THEIR COMPOSITION WILL BE SOLID SOLUTIONS OF VARIOUS CANDIDATE MATERIALS SUCH AS TIB (2), TIC, B (4)C,AND SO ON.
