Porous structure and gas permeability of carbon-carbon base composite Gravimol in production process high-temperature stages

  • G. M. Butyrin
  • V. V. Konokotin


Results are provided for study of the porous structure and gas permeability of carbon-carbon base composite Gravimol for wing cowling of space shuttle Buran in the production process high-temperature stage. The nature of porosity redistribution is shown for the three main groups of material pores in the production process and their role in the final stage, i.e., borosiliciding.
