Abstract : This memorandum summarizes information on refractory materials and composites as presented at the Eighth Meeting of the Refractory Composites Working Group in Fort Worth, Texas, January 14-16, 1964. This memorandum is based on 45 papers covering a wide variety of subjects ranging from basic studies on oxidation mechanisms to the development of specific pieces of hardware. The papers are reviewed and discussed briefly within the framework of the following four broad areas: materials technology, process technology, specific hardware applications, and evaluation techniques. Included in the section on materials technology are discussions dealing with bulk refractory materials and coatedmetal systems. Hot spraying, chemical vapor deposition, powder processes, joining, and extrusion are discussed in the section on process technology. The specific hardware applications cover rocket-motor components, nose caps, leading edges, hot skins, and fasteners. (Author)
