U.S. Researchers Show Potential of Lightweight Foam for Armoured Vehicles

Researchers at North Carolina State University have demonstrated a new composite metal foam (CMF) material that can stop armour-piercing .50-cal rounds from piercing armoured vehicles as effectively as steel, while having the advantage of weighing half as much. The discovery will allow military vehicles designers to develop much lighter armoured vehicles to the same safety

Formation of Boron Carbide-Boron Nitride Carbon Compositions

The present disclosure is generally related to synthesis of boron carbide and boron nitride. Boron carbide is a highly refractory material that is of great interest for both its structural and electronic properties. Of particular importance are its low density, high-temperature stability, high hardness, high chemical stability, high cross-section for neutron capture, and excellent high-temperature
