Under this STTR, Imaging Systems Technology (IST) in cooperation with Georgia Institute Technology (GIT) will develop and mature models to predict mechanical properties of refractory alloys with an eye toward tailoring these alloys for specific applications. In particular, this research will focus on addressing core aspects of Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) as it applies to novel Molybdenum-Silicon-Boron Composites (Mo-Si-B) and its associated processing method. Specifically the research will focus on Molybdenum-Silicon-Boron Composites (Mo-Si-B) fabricated through a novel powder processing based on the Georgia Tech Reaction Sintered (GTRS). Model development will focus on Mo-Si-B composite systems fabricated using ultrasonic spray drying of the constituent components.
