Abstract : The purpose of the study is the development of new structural composite materials having a high strength-to-weight ratio at elevated temperature. Major emphasis was placed on evaluating factors important to two potential processes for making high strength composites; high temperature pressure-bonding of electroplated whisker bundles (EP/PB), and liquid metal infiltration. Work was also performed on whisker growth, coating, and processing. (Author)
