Abstract
The recent successful flight tests of a scramjet have moved to the cycle closer to military application. One key barrier to military utilization of the scrajet is high weights in the engine. The current engine uses an inconel actively cooled wall on the engine. Recent developments in Titanium Matrix Components (TMC) offer a breakthrough potential of cutting the weight of the engine in half. FMW and Pratt Whitney propose to demonstrate an advanced thermal management system with application to a scramjet side wall. A small section will be fabricated with representative flow passage.
