Strategic and Critical Materials Program Annual Report 1985.
NTIS: PB/86-144540 :125 pages
This report summarizes the research on the strategic and critical materials program tasks conducted at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory between May 1984 and April 1985. The work is divided into two areas: production technologies and conservation and/or substitution technologies. Production technologies, tasks directed at developing advanced extraction technologies, include biologically assisted minerals processing, metal-gas reactions and thermal plasmas, and dehydration of aluminum chloride hexahydrate. Conservation and/or substitution technologies, tasks directed toward establishing the technical processing base that will permit the use of advanced materials, include joining of rapidly solidified alloys (rsa), joining of silicon nitride-based ceramics, nondestructive evaluation of ceramic and rsa joints and materials, and substitute catalytic materials for platinum.
