Abstract : This program is concerned with the principles governing high-temperature chemical and physical behavior of refractory materials especially in the respects that may contribute importantly to the successful performance of these materials as rocket nozzle components operating at high temperatures. In this program emphasis is being placed on chemical corrosion since understanding of it and its effect on operational performance are of great importance in making effective use of available materials. Guidance can be provided for the selection of the most likely material combinations for new propellant systems. (Author)
