In London for dinner—with an Australian ceramic rocket

By / November 25, 2012

Credit: Sydney Morning Herald; University of Melbourne. From Fresh Science: Melbourne University (Australia) researchers are doing rocket science with clay. They have developed a cheaper and more efficient way of making the complex, heat-resistant, ceramic parts needed to build tomorrow’s rockets and hypersonic airliners. Using clever chemistry to modify a standard method of casting ceramics…

Hilmas and Fahrenholtz on ultrahigh-temperature ceramics and hypersonic flight

By / April 8, 2010

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.

[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…
