OPPORTUNITIES FOR CERAMICS IN THE ERDA/NASA CONTINUOUS COMBUSTION PROPULSION SYSTEMS PROGRAM
An overview on engine development projects for potential use of ceramics is reported. A major ceramics materials technology effort is described to meet anticipated engine system requirements in terms of the automotive application, some of the more pressing technology needs, and some indications of how to conduct this technology program with industry-engine development projects focus on both gas turbine and Stirling engines. No numeric data are presented.
