AbstractFuture RLV applications require high temperature, durable refractory composites capable of up to 4000?aF temperature use with multiple missions. Currently used technology for X-43A is highly limited in this regard. Thus a novel approach is proposed to alleviate this problem. It is based upon FGM porosity and FGM SiC/HfC coatings to address the thermal stress problem.
