Session 1: Materials & Processes for Space Applications I
Location: Room 604 (Washington State Convention Center)
(Please check final room assignments on-site).
Session Description: Due to the high cost of access to space, lightweight materials and processing of these materials is critical for space structure applications. In addition, space structures must also be capable of withstanding launch loads and extreme thermal excursions. This session will highlight materials and processes for a variety of different space structures, from launch vehicles to large orbiting platforms to scientific satellites. Topics will include materials for rocket engines, lightweight alloys for cryotanks and space structures, and advanced processing techniques for fabricating structures to be used in space.
