Abstract
THE PROPOSED WORK WILL EXAMINE POSSIBLE APPROACHES TOWARD A METALLIC INHIBITION/PROTECTION SYSTEM FOR CARBON-CARBON COMPOSITES. THE EFFORT WILL BE A COMBINED THEORETICAL/EXPERIMENTAL STUDY TO ANALYZE AND TEST OPTIONS FOR INHIBITION OF MATRICES AND SEALING THE NEARSURFACE REGIONS USING METAL OR ALLOY COMPOSITIONS. IN BOTH CASES, THE OXIDATION PRODUCT OF THE METAL OR ALLOY INHIBITION OR SEALANT MATERIALS WILL BE INSENSITIVE TO MOISTURE. MODEL PROTECTED MATRIX MATERIALS AND PROTECTED COMPOSITES WILL BE FABRICATED AND TESTED IN COMPARISON TO BASELINE (I.E. UNPROTECTED) COMMERCIAL MATRICES AND COMPOSITES. A METALLIC INHIBITION/PROTECTION SYSTEM FOR CARBONCARBON COMPOSITES IS EXPECTED TO FIND APPLICATIONS IN LIGHTWEIGHT, OXIDATION-RESISTANT STRUCTURAL COMPONENTS FOR ADVANCED MAN-RATED TURBOJET ENGINES AS WELL AS IN UNMANNED VEHICLES.
