C/SiC and SiC/SiC composite through CVI Process
- Development of C/SiC and SiC/SiC composite products through CVI Process. These high performance composites find applications in strategic sectors (e.g. Jet vanes, exhaust cones, engine flaps, thermal protection system (TPS) in space craft structures, nose cap, wing leading edge, aircraft brakes, Fusion reactor :Flow Channel Insert, CD nozzle flaps and Exhaust cone and V gutter for gas turbine engine, nuclear fission reactor: fuel tube). CSIR-NAL has successfully demonstrated the process know-how for the fabrication of SiCf/SiC & Cf/SiC on pilot plant scale.
- Development of Slip Cast Fused Silica (SCFS) Radome through profile slip casting technique.
