Abstract
This Phase I SBIR program seeks a new fabrication method to produce ultra high temperature Ta-Hf-C-based composites (UHTC) with an outstanding oxidation resistance, as well as stronger (>100 kpsi) and tougher (>10 MPam), for use as the advanced solid rocket motor applications. UES will apply a novel STop Down approach to control the microstructures of the composites. This approach will produce a very unique grain structure that can offer high strength, high fracture toughness, and high oxidation resistance. Hot-pressing will be used as a means for densification during the Phase I feasibility study. In the Phase II work, a sinter/HIP process will be explored for near-net shape fabrication.
