Abstract:

Initial studies in the Applied Ceramic Research Program were directed toward 1 a survey of available literature to determine the current status of ceramic research in areas of interest for aerospace systems, 2 design and procurement of special equipment for fabrication research studies, and 3 procurement and characterization of starting materials. The basis of research is the development of ceramic materials with improved mechanical and physical properties. This can best be achieved through an understanding of how these properties are related to microstructure and how microstructure, in turn, can be controlled by selective variation in fabrication techniques.
