Abstract
COMPONENTS FOR AEROPROPULSION SYSTEMS WILL REQUIRE STRUCTURAL, MINIMUM-WEIGHT, REUSABLE THERMAL PROTECTION MATERIALS. THE LIMITATIONS OF CURRENTLY AVAILABLE MATERIALSARE TEMPERATURE, THERMAL SHOCK RESISTANCE, AND FRACTURE TOUGHNESS. BY AN INNOVATIVE APPLICATION OF CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION, ULTRAMET PROPOSES TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITYOF FABRICATING COMPOSITE MATERIALS WHOSE ULTIMATE CAPABILITIES ARE: 1. 2200 DEGREE(") OR HIGHER OPERATING TEMPERATURES 2. OXIDATION RESISTANCE 3. INTRINSIC THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY LESS THAN 0.2 W/M.K 4. AREAL DENSITY LESS THAN 2.0 G/CM3 5. FLEXURAL STRENGTH AT ROOM TEMPERATURE OF 30,000 PSI AND AT 2200 DEGREE(C) OF 3000 PSI 6. METAL-LIKE FRACTURE TOUGHNESS AND THERMAL SHOCK RESISTANCE
