CC-SiC Throat and CFRP based Nozzle


As a component of challenge 1, it is proposed to build Carbon Carbon-Silicon Carbide (CC-SiC) Throat and Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) based Nozzle divergent without metallic back-up which can withstand the thermo-structural loads for considerable performance enhancement compared to conventional ablative material based nozzle system, which demand metallic back-up to withstand the structural loads. These nozzles enable rockets for extended ranges or carry heavier payloads
