Development of Manufacturing Technology of Nozzles from Composite Materials during Radiation Cooling

Minggong Sha, Lev Rabinskiy, Yuri A. Utkin


Carbon-carbon composite materials (CCCM) are a new class of structural materials designed to create light, durable, and space-based rigid structures for aerospace, hypersonic, gas turbine engines, parts of nozzle blocks, rocket combustion chambers, and transition trusses. They have the unique ability to maintain high strength and stiffness with 2500°C. For the manufacture of thermally stressed parts of nozzles, carbon fiber fabrics are used. Antioxidant coatings based on tantalum and silicon are applied to nozzles with adhesive (made based on tantalum carbide, which provides high mechanical strength of adhesion of erosion-resistant antioxidant coating with CCCM), antioxidant and erosion-resistant layers. To deposit a layer of tantalum carbide on CCCM, we used the technology of vacuum ion-plasma deposition of tantalum film followed by carbonization with carbon. As a result, an adhesive coating of tantalum carbide is formed on the surface of the packing. Obtaining an erosion-resistant antioxidant coating on the adhesion layer of tantalum carbide is obtained by applying a slip of silicon carbide powders and soot. The study of the performance of antioxidant and erosion-resistant protective coating in high-temperature airflow was carried out on plasmatron (it is a plasma generator in which an electric current is used to form a plasma; for cooling it, channels washed by water are used). This article shows that the studied packings have a unique ability to maintain high strength and rigidity with 2500°C. There is the expediency of manufacturing such nozzles. The physical and mechanical characteristics of the material were determined.
