Ultra High Temperature Refractory Materials, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Legacy refractory materials that have origins dating to the original Saturn program are commonly used in current launch facilities. Although they failure to meet the target requirements, they are the only approved material. Our research team proposed to develop an ultra high temperature refractory system that uses a non-cement binder, a high temperature macro aggregate, and reactive nano aggregates. The developed binder system will exhibit substantial improvements in strength and have functional limit of 4000F. More »
