The Low Cost Ceramic Composites program was initiated to develop a process for fabricating low-cost, structural ceramic composite components that offer the potential to achieve increased specific properties required at high operating temperatures. Part of the program is to develop a simulation capability that can be used to define component and tool design features that optimize the use of resin transfer molding for processing Blackglas preceramic polymer matrix/Nextel fiber composite materials. This simulation capability will allow designers to assess the manufacturability impacts of design decisions.
