MATECH will leverage modeling capabilities developed for PAN-based carbon fiber reinforced structural insulators in order to build models using rayon replacement carbon fiber reinforcement phases for significant gains in thermal performance when scaled-up to structural or ablative insulator componentry (valves, nozzles, hot gas flow materials, etc.). Activities will aid in growing potential rayon replacement technology by screening (through thermal and mechanical modeling) several rayon analog carbon fibers (CFs) ahead of composite level testing. MATECH proposes to investigate Tencela lyocell based CFs as well other potential environmentally sustainable solutions. Approved for Public Release | 17-MDA-9219 (31 May 17)
