Abstract
RCI PROPOSES TO COMBINE REFRACTORY METAL CVD TECHNOLOGIES AND CVI CERAMIC AND CARBON-CARBON COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGIES TO PRODUCE SMALL DIAMETER FASTENERS WITH METALLIC THREAD ZONES. THESE FASTENERS ARE EXPECTED TO BE PRINCIPALLY USED IN HOT COMPOSITE TO COOLED METAL STRUCTURE ATTACHMENTS WHERE THE METALLIC ZONE IS BURIED IN THE COOLED METAL STRUCTURE IN THE ASSEMBLED STATE OR IN APPLICATIONS WHERE THE THREADS ARE PROTECTED FROM OXIDATION. PRIOR TAPE LOCK COMPOSITE FASTENER WORK BY RCI WILL BE USED AS THE FOUNDATION FOR THIS PROJECT. VARIOUS FASTENER DESIGNS AND MATERIALS OF CONSTRUCTION BEYOND THESE TYPES WILL BE NEEDED FOR HYPERSONIC VEHICLES.
