This project is about materials for extreme environments. The materials are Ultra High Temperature Ceramics (UHTCs) used in supersonic/hypersonic vehicles in leading edges and nose cones where they experience extreme mechanical and thermal loads. Temperatures can go above 2000C. We developed a novel characterization technique for testing high temperature mechanical properties. Unlike conventional testing which is limited to a temperature
