Abstract:

The work covered within this report includes investigation into the thermal and physical properties of new ceramic matrices. Promising matrices were used to fabricate glass reinforced laminates for evaluation. The primary criteria used was flexural strength after thermal aging. Additional information is reported on the effect of curing atmosphere on laminate strength. Curing in an inert atmosphere appears to have a significant effect on strength retention after thermal aging. Continued evaluation of protective finish for the glass fabric was conducted. Thermal and mechanical data on glass reinforced aluminum phosphate laminates are reported. The final report of the electrical testing of the 64 inch glass reinforced aluminum phosphate radome is given. This test shows excellent transmission and broadband properties. A discussion of problem areas, conclusions and recommendations is presented. Author
