Abstract
THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW MATERIAL TERMED "FIBROUS CARBON" IS PROPOSED. THIS MATERIAL IS FORMED BY THE PLASTICIZATION AND COMPACTION OF STABILIZED POLYACRYLONITRILE FIBERS FOLLOWED BY PYROLYSIS. PREVIOUS WORK HAS SHOWN GOOD TRANSLATION OF AXIAL FIBER PROPERTIES INTO THE FIBROUS CARBON. THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF IMPROVED SHEAR PROPERTIES IN CARBON BASED MATERIALS NEEDED FOR AIR FORCE APPLICATIONS SUCH AS SATELLITE STRUCTURES AND GAS TURBINE COMPONENTS.
