Hypervelocity Impact Response of Ti-6Al-4V and Commercially Pure Titanium

Titanium alloy, Ti-6Al-4V, and commercially pure (CP) Titanium will be used to protect the Solar Probe Plus (SPP) spacecraft against hypervelocity impacts by solar dust particles. The results of six hypervelocity impact (HVI) tests performed on Ti-6Al-4V and CP monolithic samples (3 each) arc evaluated in terms of cratering and spall damage, and compared with crater depth and spall initiation predictions using the Ballistic Limit Equation (BLE) for Titanium shields developed at NASA Johnson Space Center and hydrocode computa ...

Ceramic coatings for the solar probe plus mission

A study was conducted to develop the coatings needed to protect the Solar Probe Plus Thermal Protection System (TPS) from the harsh environment. The TPS encountered harsh environment during its mission close to the sun, facing significant solar fluxes. The first part of the study addressed the way a coating s microstructure affected its optical properties and the way coatings were designed to maintain the right microstructure over temperature. The study was led by a researcher from the Advanced Technology Laboratory of the W ...
