[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…
