Abstract
A PROPOSAL IS SUBMITTED TO DEMONSTRATE AN INEXPENSIVE PROCESS FOR PRODUCING COMPOSITE CARBIDE CERAMICS HAVING A CONTROLLED POROSITY MATRIX REINFORCED WITH CARBIDE FIBERS IN WHICH THE MATRIX PROPERTIES CAN BE TAILORED THROUGH CHEMICAL MEANS TO OPTIMIZE COMPOSITE PROPERTIES AND THEN TO MEASURE THE PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF TEST SAMPLES SO PRODUCED. BASED ON THESE RESULTS, A REPRESENTATIVE STRUCTURAL COMPONENT WILL BE INJECTION MOLDED OR LAID UP TO DEMONSTRATE PROCESSABILITY, AND A COST ASSESSMENT WILL BE MADE FOR PRODUCING REPRESENTATIVE COMPONENTS BY THIS PROCESS.
