  • A ceramic material and a method of forming a ceramic material which possesses a high impact resistance. The material comprises: (a) a first continuous phase of .beta.-SiC; and (b) a second phase of about 25-40 vol % TiB.sub.2. Al.sub.2 O.sub.3 is preferably used as a densification aid. The material is formed by hot-pressing the mixture at a temperature from greater than about 1800.degree. C. to less than the transition temperature of .beta.-SiC to .alpha.-SiC. The hot-pressing is performed at a pressure of about 2000 psi to about 4000 psi in an inert atmosphere for several hours and results in themore » formation of a two phase sintered ceramic composite material.« less
  • Battery enclosure arrangements for a vehicular battery system. The arrangements, capable of impact resistance include plurality of battery cells and a plurality of kinetic energy absorbing elements. The arrangements further include a frame configured to encase the plurality of the kinetic energy absorbing elements and the battery cells. In some arrangements the frame and/or the kinetic energy absorbing elements can be made of topologically interlocked materials.
  • Pittsburgh-Des Moines Steel Co.'s new aboveground double-wall LNG tank is unique in both maintaining an effective seal for cryogenic liquids and providing impact resistance to withstand explosions or impact loads caused by accidents such as a nearby airplane crash. The impact-resistant tank has an inner wall and bottom made of suitable cryogenic metal reinforced by annular reinforcing rings. Between the inner and outer walls is an insulation (such asperlite) as well as a compaction-control system consisting of inner and outer glass-fiber blankets. A vapor barrier or seal (30 to 60 mils thick) of a butyl elastomer is applied to themore » inner surface of the outer reinforced-concrete wall. This wall, slip-formed in 120/sup 0/ segments, is reinforced by bars and ties and a double-mesh layer adjacent to its inner surface. The wall is post-stressed after installation.« less
  • This patent describes an impact resistant polymeric composition comprising: (a) from 50 to 97 percent by weight of a thermoplastic polyester; and (b) from 3 to 50 percent by weight of a functionalized selectively hydrogenated block copolymer of the formula B/sub n/(AB)/sub o/A/sub p/ where n=0 or 1, oless than or equal to1, p=0 or 1, each A is predominantly a polymerized vinyl aromatic hydrocarbon block and, each B prior to hydrogenation is predominantly a polymerized conjugated diene hydrocarbon block, to which has been grafted at least one graftable functional molecule selected from the group consisting of an electrophilic graftablemore » molecule containing a functional group and an electrophile, wherein substantially all of the electrophilic graftable molecules or electrophiles are grafted to the block copolymer in the vinyl aromatic hydrocarbon block.« less
