Missouri S&T pioneers process for tough, custom aerospace materials

By / March 5, 2010

A group out of Missouri University of Science and Technology says it has a new method for mixing metals with ceramic that will allow stronger, heat-resistant, functionally graded materials for the creation of hypersonic and other ultrahigh-temperature aerospace components. The group, led by Ming Lue, a mechanical and aerospace engineering professor at S&T, uses a…
