Abstract
THE PHASE I RESEARCH WILL EXAMINE NOVEL METHODS FOR APPLICATION OF SINGLE PHASE AND COMPOSITE GLASS AND GLASS-MATRIX COATINGS FOR OXIDATION AND EROSION RESISTANCE IMPROVEMENT OF AFR700B MATRIX COMPOSITES. SINGLE PHASE AND COMPOSITE COATINGS WILL BE APPLIED TO COMPOSITE SUBSTRATES BY SOL-GEL, SOLUTION/MELT PROCESSING, AND BY LOW POWER THERMAL SPRAYING TECHNIQUES. COATING MICROSTRUCTURES WILL BE FULLY CHARACTERIZED AND COATING OXIDATION PROPERTIES MEASURED AT APPROPRIATE TEMPERATURES. THE DEVELOPED METHODS OF SINGLE PHASE AND COMPOSITE GLASS COATING PREPARATION ARE EXPECTED TO BE USEFUL FOR COST-EFFECTIVE APPLICATION OF OXIDATION AND EROSION CONTROL COATINGS ON ADVANCED AIRCRAFT STRUCTURES AND COMPONENTS.
