Abstract
THE PROPOSED WORK WILL EXAMINE SYNTHESIS OF HIGH PURITY REFRACTORY METAL ALLOY PARTICULATES AND WHISKERS FOR USE AS DUCTILE REINFORCING PHASES IN ADVANCED INTERMETALLIC MATRIX COMPOSITES. PROTOTYPE DUCTILE REINFORCING PHASES WILL BE PREPARED AND THERMOCHEMICAL COMPATIBILITY TESTS WILL BE PERFORMED ON DISCONTINUOUSLY REINFORCED MODEL COMPOSITED WITH ADVANCED INTERMETALLIC MATRICES. THE PROJECT IS EXPECTED TO DEMONSTRATE THAT ADVANCED INTERMETALLIC MATRICES CAN BE REINFORCED WITH DISPERSED DUCTILE REFRACTORY METAL ALLOY PARTICULATES AND WHISKERS OF COMMPOSITIONS WHICH WILL BE THERMOCHEMICALLY STABLE AT ELEVATED TEMPERATURES. SUCH COMPOSITES ARE EXPECTED TO FIND APPLICATIONS IN ADVANCED, HIGH THRUST/WEIGHT PROPULSION SYSTEMS.
