Commercially Available Materials to Resist Compressive Creep at 400 °C

  The Defense Systems Information Analysis Center (DSIAC) received a technical inquiry requesting information in identifying a metal with high creep resistance.  The inquirer stated that there was a lack of publicly available information pertaining…


Cyber Forged – Advanced Computer Tech Speeds Materials Development

Materials — natural substances altered by humans to meet specific needs — are critical to technology. Today’s advanced materials make possible rocket engines, smartphones, medical machines, anti-pollution devices, and much more. Traditionally, materials have been developed slowly, by trial and error. Today, 21st century computational techniques, in tandem with cutting-edge experimentation capabilities, allow materials scientists

Discovery Could Lead to Jet Engines that Run Hotter and Cleaner

COLUMBUS, Ohio—Researchers here have made a discovery in materials science that sounds like something from the old Saturday morning cartoon Super Friends: They’ve found a way to deactivate “nano twins” to improve the high-temperature properties of superalloys that are used in jet engines. The advance could speed the development of powerful and environmentally friendly turbine

Rocket Engine Technologies for Next Gen Launch Systems Demonstrated

EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. — The U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory and contractor Aerojet Rocketdyne (subsidiary of Aerojet Rocketdyne Holdings) achieved a major milestone under the Hydrocarbon Boost program, which is advancing domestic rocket engine technologies in support of next generation launch. The Hydrocarbon Boost program completed full power, full duration tests of the
