Atomistic Investigation of High Temperature Material Behavior
High temperature mechanical behavior of materials is of critical importance in a variety of contexts: next-generation reentry vehicles, hyper sonic ﬂights, nuclear plants, engines, among many others. Creep is the dominant ...
Creep Behavior of a Zirconium Diboride-Silicon Carbide Composite and Preliminary ZrB2-WC Quasi-Binary Alloy Development for Long Duty Cycle Aerosurfaces and Structural Propulsion Applications
The mechanical behavior of select ultra-high temperature ceramics were studied for extreme environment aerospace applications. Hot-pressed ZrB2-20 vol% SiC composites and ZrB2-WC quasi-binary alloys were developed for ...
