Abstract:

Graphite and kaolin, when used individually, have favorable properties for specific applications, but neither one of them could be considered entirely satisfactory for a heat shield able to withstand high heat fluxes. However, in this investigation, the feasibility and versatility of graphite dispersed in a kaolin matrix for use as an ablative heat shield was partially established. The evaluation of the usefulness was based on the durability of the composite, as well as a comparison against the individual starting materials. Author
