NASA SBIR 00-II Solicitation

FORM 9B - PROPOSAL SUMMARY


PROPOSAL NUMBER: 03.03-7921 (For NASA Use Only - Chron: 002080 )
PHASE-I CONTRACT: NAS8-01068
PROPOSAL TITLE: Novel Approach to the Fabrication of a C-SiC Blisk

TECHNICAL ABSTRACT (LIMIT 200 WORDS)
The Successful Phase I work resulted in an optimized C-SiC technology and the fabrication of 8?x8?x2? composites and a deliverable of 15? O.D and 2.5? thick disc composites.

Mechanical properties such as tensile strength (RT, 2500 F), and shear strength were determined. These results were found to be equal or greater than the state?of?the art CVI produced composites.

Phase II addresses the issues of process development to further increase the UTS, higher toughness, and improved environmental durabilities for these novel composites.

This Phase II proposed program will extend the accomplishments of Phase I to the fabrication of 40? O.D, and 2.5? thick C-SiC discs.


POTENTIAL COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS
