Abstract:

State-of-the-art technology on high performance materials being studied for aerospace and military weapon system applications is reviewed in fifty four Conference papers. Of these, seventeen are of direct interest to Plastec. The topics covered include inorganic refractories, ceramics and metal allys, organic polymers, and fiber metal fiber, fiberglass, and graphite fiber reinforced ceramic and organic matrix composites. The space environment effects solar, gamma, UV, IR and thermal radiation on the mechanical, physical and optical properties of these materials were studied, and coatings for controlling the effects are discussed.
