Abstract : This memorandum summarizes information on refractory materials and composites as presented at the Eleventh Meeting of the Refractory Composites Working Group in Los Angeles, California, on January 25-27, 1966. This memorandum is based on the 53 papers that were presented at the meeting. They are reviewed and discussed briefly within the framework of the following four broad areas: materials technology, process technology, specific hardware applications and tests, and evaluation techniques. Included in the section on materials technology are discussions dealing with bulk refractory materials, coated systems, and fiber-reinforced composites. The section on process technology discusses coating and general fabrication processes. The specific hardware applications and tests cover rocket-motor components, improved ceramics for cutting tools, nose cones, ceramic enclosures (radomes), and honeycomb sandwich structures. (Author)
