The High-Temperature Oxidation of Hot-Pressed Silicon Carbide
For the past several years, we have been studying the oxidation behavior of a number of silicon-based materials, the aim being to define the rate-determining mechanism of oxidation. These materials have a bright future in high-temperature energy systems such as MHD generators, rocket engines, re-entry vehicles, and advanced air-breathing propulsion systems. Desirable properties include retained strength at elevated temperatures, chemical inertness, thermal stability, and high strength-to-weight ratio.
