The behavior of composite material reinforced with carbon fibers under the effect of high-temperature gas flow

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The regularities of high-temperature failure of carbon-filled plastics in a stream of chemically active gases are experimentally investigated at stagnation pressures of up to 30 MPa and temperatures of up to 3000 K. The obtained results correspond to the existing model of failure of heat-shielding materials in gas flows. It is shown that an intense heating of a composite polymer material may be accompanied by a time-constant cracking of its surface layer.
