Lyocell Based Carbon Carbon Composite for Use as a Large Exit Cone Material, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Lyocell Based Carbon Carbon Composite for Use as a Large Exit Cone Material, Phase I
The NASA Office of the Chief Technologist (OCT) has identified a "carbon-carbon nozzle (domestic source)" as a "Top Technical Challenge" in the 2011-2016 timeframe in the "Launch Propulsion Systems Roadmap" document. This program, by utilizing a demonstrably capable team with a deep history in the manufacture, testing, and analysis of C/C materials, will address this need by developing a Lyocell C/C composite system aimed at the need for a composite J2X nozzle extension.
