Abstract
The proposed Phase II effort will complete the development, design, fabrication and hot gas evaluation of unitary, net-shape braided throttleable divert and attitude control system (TDACS) components. The program will demonstrate a low cost, thermally-stable, triaxially braided C-SiC integrated throat / plenum / exit cone structure for advanced DACS application. This structure will be designed to eliminate the need for a separate throat insert. The fiber preform will be optimized for enhanced manufacturability in addition to providing the desired material properties. Combined with a cost effective polymer impregnation and pyrolysis (PIP) SiC densification process, the result will be extremely cost effective, high strength, and erosion resistant CMC TDACS components.
