Abstract:

The objectives of the program were to 1 develop a production process to produce rayon precursor graphite-aluminum wire with a capacity of 1000 lbs. per year in accordance with Naval Sea Systems Command development specification for metal-matrix composites MTP-114, dated 13 January 1975, 2 optimize the process for the design of a single unit that would produce 2000 lbs. of polyacrylonitrile PAN graphite-aluminum wire per year, and 3 demonstrate the 1000 lb. per year production process by producing 100 lbs. of graphite-aluminum wire.
