AIR FORCE INST OF TECH WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB OH DEPT OF AERONAUTICS AND ASTRONAUTICS
Pagination or Media Count:
Suitability of non-organic polymers for space application is studied. Materials included are illite and metakaolin. Bulk material suitability was investigated for exposure to ultraviolet radiation, atomic oxygen, and high energy charged particles. Outgassing phenomenon of the materials was studied. Curing shrinkage reduction techniques were identified as well.
