In London for dinner—with an Australian ceramic rocket

Hypersonic flight will allow passengers to travel at up to five times faster than the speed of sound (Mach 5). A flight  between Melbourne and London would take about two hours. Jets have already been built that can achieve these speeds for a few seconds, but maintaining those conditions for an entire flight remains a challenge: and it’s partly a materials challenge.

So Melbourne researchers are doing rocket science with clay.

They have developed a cheaper and more efficient way of making the complex, heat-resistant, ceramic parts needed to build tomorrow’s rockets and hypersonic airliners.

Using clever chemistry to modify a standard method of casting ceramics in a mould, they have developed an alternative to the traditional technique of forming these ceramics as blocks at high temperatures and pressures. And their new method, a form of slip casting, allows them to generate ultra-high-temperature ceramic components at lower temperatures and pressures, which do not require extensive machining, hence saving time and energy.
