Hot news: Laser melting sets new record for ultra-high temperature ceramic materials

By April Gocha / January 13, 2017

Researchers at Imperial College London have discovered that hafnium carbide and tantalum carbide have some of the highest melting points of any measured materials—making these ultra-high temperature ceramics potentially perfect for use in extreme environments, such as on hypersonic vehicles that soar through space.

University of Limoges developing composite ceramics for aeronautics applications

By Martin Grolms / August 4, 2011

ZrC-SiC materials from poly(methylvinylsilane) Credit Pizon, et al.; Advanced Engineering Materials. New advanced materials are often drivers of technologies, especially for aeronautics applications. Many materials have been developed to resist severe working conditions, which usually couple high-temperature and mechanical-stress corrosion resistance. For these applications, non-oxide ceramics are promising materials, particularly transition metal carbides, such as zirconium…

Video of the week: Ultrahigh-temperature ceramics and hypersonic flight

By / March 31, 2010

[flash https://ceramics.org/ceramictechtoday/wp-content/video/hilmas_fahrenholtz.flv mode=1 f={image=/ceramictechtoday/wp-content/video/hilmas_fahrenholtz.jpg}] Greg Hilmas and Bill Fahrenholtz, both professors at Missouri S&T, are working on developing ceramic materials that can withstand ultrahigh temperatures (1,600°C–3,000°C) that will be encountered by hypersonic planes of the future. Ultrahigh-temperature ceramic materials are particularly needed on the leading edges of acute flight surfaces to withstand the intense heat…
