  2. Regeneratively Cooled Ceramic Matrix Composite Nozzle Assembly for Reduced Weight

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: T9

    All rocket missions benefit from having lower structural mass and higher specific impulse, both of which contribute to larger payload fractions and therefore lower mission cost. High temperature materials such as ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) are an avenue to lower engine mass because of the low density and high specific strength of the material. They also have a high maximum temperature and so ...
