Abstract:

The objective of this research is to investigate a new class of material composed of 30-60 atomic percent C-Ti for ultrahigh temperature applications in space power systems. The alloy system under investigation exhibits melting temperatures in excess of 2500 degrees C and form long range ordered structures which are expected to yield materials with exceptional high temperature strength and resistance to environmental degradation.
