What are the carbon fiber composite materials that play a role in the space field?
Carbon fiber composite materials have outstanding advantages such as high specific strength, high specific modulus, and anisotropy. As one of the four major aerospace materials, carbon fiber composite materials are more and more widely used in military and civilian fields. And satellite vehicles also play a very important role.
The world's first carbon composite large launch vehicle. Neutron will be the world's first large launch vehicle made of carbon composites. Neutron's structure will consist of a new, specially formulated carbon-fiber composite material that is lightweight and strong enough to withstand the enormous heat and forces of launch and re-entry for frequent first-stage re-entry flights.
Carbon fiber composite materials are mainly used to manufacture the structural components of the rocket body and the engine casing. Among them, the engine cover, casing, combustion chamber, finned tube, nose cone, fuselage and other components need to use high temperature resistance, specific stiffness and A material with a high specific modulus has high strength and light weight.
The application of carbon fiber composite materials in rockets has been relatively mature. With the update and iteration of carbon fiber composite materials, subsequent continuous carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic composite materials have come out one after another. There may be new changes in the manufacture of multiple parts of the rocket, and carbon fiber aerospace applications will get more results, we will wait and see.
