U.S. Air Force advancing hypersonic flight vehicles with 3D printed ceramics

The U.S. Air Force is advancing the development of hypersonic flight vehicles with 3D printed ceramics. The research into applications for the 3D printed ceramic, silicon oxycarbide (SiOC), is conducted under a Collaborative Research and Development – Material Transfer Agreement (CRADA-MTA), between the US Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Aerospace Systems Directorate and HRL Laboratories, a research center […]

NASA hat teilweise 3D-gedrucktes RS-25 Raketentriebwerk getestet

nasa rs25 test 300x199 - NASA hat teilweise 3D-gedrucktes RS-25 Raketentriebwerk getestet

Am 21 Februar wurde ein RS-25 Raketentriebwerk im Stennis Space Center getestet. Bei dem Belastungstest wurde das Triebwerk mit einer Leistung von bis zu 113 Prozent belastet. Eine der Besonderheiten des RS-25 Triebwerkes sind die 3D-gedruckten Bauteile die im Inneren eingesetzt werden. Erst vor kurzem wurden 3D-gedruckte Bauteile für das AR1 Raketentriebwerk getestet. Ebenfalls aktuell […]
