China Develops Groundbreaking Heat-Resistant Material For Hypersonic Weapon

Support SouthFront

Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

At Mach 5 (3,836 mph), a hypersonic vehicle enters a dense atmospheric layer, the ambient gas undergoes not only density change, but also a significant temperature increase. This physical-chemical reaction is associated with the flight speed is converted into heat and chemical energy, which is a considerable heat barrier that had researchers around the world scrambling for new materials that could withstand temperatures far higher than the melting point of metal.

It seems that researchers in central China, studying hypersonic heat transfer, a subdivision of aerodynamics that studies gas motion laws, have developed a non-carbon-based heat-resistance material for hypersonic flight, according to the Global Times.

China Develops Groundbreaking Heat-Resistant Material For Hypersonic Weapon

The lead scientist, Fan Jinglian from Central South University in Central China’s Hunan Province, developed a composite of ceramics and refractory metals that can endure hypersonic flight at Mach 5-20 within the atmosphere for several hours, or temperatures of about 5,400 Fahrenheit.

Jinglian said the composite of ceramics and refractory metals makes the new material far more superior to Western technologies that use “traditional refractory metals and carbon-carbon materials.”

She said the composite is like concrete cobble.

“Think of the ceramics as the cobblestones, or the pellets, and the refractory metals are like the concrete. In high temperatures, the ceramics will act as pellets that pin the refractory metals, so they will not soften and deform.”

As a result, the material has a melting point higher than metal, but also important characteristics such as low density and high malleability, according to the Hunan Television report.

As of March, the composite has been used in aviation, space exploration, shipbuilding, and national defense products, Hunan Television said.

Over the past two decades, China has made enormous progress in upgrading its military capabilities. China launched its hypersonic program in 2009, and by 2014, began testing an experimental hypersonic glide vehicle – that could be operational by 2020.

We reported last month that Xiamen University, a public university in Xiamen, Fujian on China’s southeast coast, successfully tested a hypersonic missile in Northwestern China.

Unlike American hypersonic rockets such as Boeing’s X-51 Waverider, which rides on a hot layer of gas known as a “shock wave,” the Jiageng-1 No.1 rides on two layers of shock waves, one underneath the rocket and the other in the air intake of its ramjet engine.

The Jiageng-1 No.1 has several innovative advantages over Western hypersonic rockets: it can transition from supersonic to hypersonic speeds with ease, and the design produces more lift allowing it to travel further with more efficient fuel consumption.

Zhu Chengxiang, an assistant professor at the university’s School of Aerospace Engineering and part of the hypersonic launch, said the Pentagon is deeply disturbed by China’s rapid development of hypersonic vehicles and had tried to severe Chinese scientists’ collaboration efforts with Western researchers.

A Weibo post by Xiamen University shows the hypersonic rocket in flight. The rocket flies throughout the Stratosphere with a maximum altitude of about 90,000 feet. During the test, the rocket performed as planned after making some maneuvers to “reproduce real flight conditions and conduct aerodynamic tests,” then glided down and deployed a parachute to land safely on the ground.

US Air Force Lt. Gen. Samuel Greaves, director of the Missile Defense Agency, said last year that he supports Undersecretary of Defense for Research and Engineering Michael Griffin’s push to develop space-based sensors that would defend the nation from hypersonic attacks by America’s adversaries [China and Russia].

“The hypersonic threat is real, it is not imagination,” Lt. Gen. Greaves explained last summer at the Capitol Hill Club.

Griffin warned that the US could be falling behind in hypersonic arms race.

“In the last year, China has tested more hypersonic weapons than we have in a decade. We’ve got to fix that.”

The new, groundbreaking composite material and the latest hypersonic missile test in China – exposes just how far the US is behind the curve.

Well done China. You are advancing in right direction. Grow up, keep it up and don’t give up. The whole world prayers are with you.

Awesome news, well done China

Justin

.”Over the past two decades, China has made enormous progress in upgrading its military capabilities”

BULLSHIT!
They were given our industries and they have been transferred our tech!
They cant even make engines for their 5th gen fighter!
They copied the SU-27 and called it a J-10

Chinese are fucking useless!
FUCKING USELESS!!!!!

IT IS ONLY RUSSIA THAT THE USA FEARS!

Justin

Oh gee look there’s Eric Schmidt (head of Google’s parent company “alphabet” in north Korea! Just a friendly little visit to hook them up directly to Hillary’s bathroom server!

Oh look Chinese CIA spies!

Oh Gee look, DARPA created Life Log (a civilian information tracking system), closed it down and then launched Facebook the next day!

oh what a good little Jewish CIA agents Zuck is! Doing what they teach all their agents to do! Marry the right people! A Zionist and a Chinese women! What a coincidence

Oh gee look, Google (who is really the CIA) is working for China! OHHHHH GEE, i wonder why this doesnt get posted on southfront?
DO YOU GET ME NOW YOU DUMB CUNT?

You support the NEW zionist HQ for whome the CIA (globalist intel agency) has been working for for the last 25 years!

You love JEWS!
You love communists!
you love countries with no rights
you love a President for life
You love digital spy grids where THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A RIGHT TO PRIVACY LEGALLY!

YOU ARE A DUMB CUNT!

Justin

“Awesome news, well done China”
TRANSLATION
Awesome news, well done C.I.A, thanks for the transfer of information

Mr Bray

Reading between the lines of this public release – This material will offer some extra resistance – albeit very time limited – to the extreme heat from even the most advanced laser ABM systems.

The US scientists are well aware that even one second of extra resistance at hypersonic speeds could mean the difference between a missile hitting its target or it being destroyed / disrupted in flight.

PS – A cryptic messege appeared on the web earlier which may or may not be of interest: “The target on the plane was the man with the calf leather briefcase. Check the passenger list and look at what started the fire.”

Even though the Americans don’t know what this stuff is, they are claiming China stole it from America.
Americans are more Jewish than Jews.

FlorianGeyer

Ah, but you are wrong ,Sinbad. The Americans do know what ‘the stuff is’.
Its the material used to make the Clintons underwear. :)

Bibi and his wife are also wearing in now.

Justin

i am right!
you are wrong!
And when this information becomes mainstream! im gonna fuck you up cunt!
You are weak as piss you fucking transport corps, drafted, weak piece of shit traitor!
I can forgive u or hating america but i will never forgive you for supporting china!

Be honest, you LOVE the CIA and China!
YOU FUCKING LOVE THEM!!!!
JUST SAY IT!

Eric Schmidt in North Korea (i wonder why)
Dumb cunts like you have no idea why! Youre too fucking dumb!

You love them!

Justin

ARE YOU STARTING TO UNDERSTAND NOW YOU DUMB CUNT??
ARE U STARTING TO SEE THE LIGHT YET?
DO YOU FUCKING KNOW ABOUT HER SERVER IN HER BATHROOM?
DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THE BEGINNING OF THE GLOBALIST MOVEMENT OF INDUSTRIES TOWARDS CHINA WHEN HER HUSBAND BILL CAME TO POWER?
ARE YOU STARTING TO UNDERSTAND TRAITOR??
https://youtu.be/JqfQ_kDOrIY?t=362

Justin

WHEN THE NEWS COMES ABOUT ABOUT CHINA…. YOU WILL FINALLY MEET ME!

:)

COMING TO A THEATRE NEAR YOU!

TRAITOR!

Sinbad2

If you’re so anti China, why do you live in China Town?

I think that really you are Chinese, or a Jew, only a Chinese or Jew would pick such a gay user name as Justine for an Australian.

You should have chosen a good Aussie name like Bruce or Bazza.

Justin

lol, is that the best you can do?
I knew you were piss weak!
I dont hate Chinese people but i do hate jewish people!
I dont like China!
I hate the CIA
I hate Israel
I dont dislike America! They are just like us! We fought in every war they were in!
America was Hi-jacked!
The CIA and the MSM in America works for China!
Trump is changing that!
You will find out soon!
I tried to wake your dumb ass up!
But youre too dumb!
Even on SouthFront you will hear that China tried to get Hillary elected, had the CIA transferring intel to them and were planned to be the worlds new Zionist HQ (because America is just too difficult to manage)

When you hear this, u better stop visiting southfront, because i am gonna bombard the fuck out of you with screen shots of our conversations! How this dumbass couldnt open his old ass eyes up to real knowledge!

Youre too dumb, thats the real reason! All u do is have hate in your heart! You dont know how to decipher information, you just think backwards! You cannot seperate America from Zionists! You cannot seperate America from the CIA or its MSM! You think the population is dumb and u are full of knowledge! YOURE NOT!

You are just as dumb as the sheeple! U think only in terms of your emotions which is “hate america”!
Here is who i hate:

The CIA, Mossad, Israel, Globalists, the Chinese takeover of Australia, Corrupt politicians, the MSM!

Now you can see clearly where u and i differ!
And i am telling you that you are uninformed! You literally support Zionist Globalists BECAUSE YOURE TOO DUMB TO KNOW WHO IS WHO! You havent figured it out yet!

Youre too dumb to understand that Barack Obama had a Globalist on one hand (George Soros) and Iranian on the other (Valerie Jarrett) and a Saudi on the Other (alwaleed bin talal)

YOUR BRAIN CANNOT COMPUTE THIS INFORMATION!

A Jew who worked with Nazi’s (Zionist)
An elitist Iranian (shiia)
An elitist Saudi Prince (Sunni)

YOUR BRAIN CANT FIGURE IT OUT!

BECAUSE YOURE TOO DUMB!

THEN ADD THE FACT IN THAT OBAMA DROPPED SANCTIONS ON IRAN AND GAVE THEM BACK 130 BILLION IN FROZEN ASSETS!

So?? What does your dumb brain make of it???

I know you dont know!
I know that all you do is chant the same bullshit!

Why is the MSM attacking Trump??

You cant figure it out!

Why would obama drop sanctions on Iran and Trump put them back?
Have u figured it out?
Why did trump meet with Kim Jung Un?
Why was Google in North Korea?

have u figured it out yet?

Why did Hillary smash 2 of her devices with a hammer and bleach bit the others?

Who were the Awan brothers and what happened to their server?

Who was Seth Rich?

YOU DONT KNOW BECAUSE YOURE DUMB!!!!

All roads lead to China!!
China is supported by Globalists!
You barrack for them!

You may as well come out and say “i love the CIA and Zionists”!
Thats why i attack you so much! Because youre too fuckin dumb!

Sinbad2

The self hating Chinaman blows his noodle again.
Does seeing yourself in a mirror cause you froth at the mouth?
Just accept that you are Chinese and move on with your life.
Things could be worse, you might have been born an Indian, or an emu.

Justin

Wow you given up!
You cant deal with me so now you have to call me Chinese!
You have no counter arguement!
I told you that you are a weak dumb cunt and u have now proven it!

You LOVE China! You fuckin love em!
You would fight for China in a war against the USA!
You would fight for China in a war against Australia!
And id be the one who comes to get u!
:)

Justin

“If you’re so anti China, why do you live in China Town?”
Not many Chinese where i live but they are certainly moving in!
However when i stop at a red light i always look to my right, my left and in my rear vision mirror to check the stats on what i see!

2/3 of the time its all Asian and Indian!
They live out in the suburbs where as the whites live amongst them! But towards the city its mostly white people! THANK GOD

Im not racist even though i could be easily seen as one! i just dont like my country being invaded softly!

However, i know you love it!
You should just openly say it mate!
Just say that you love china and u hate the usa! just fuckin say it!

Tommy Jensen

China stealing America´s intellectual property again. This has to stop and China has to pay America.

FlorianGeyer

Would one of the missiles landing on Washington be suitable recompense ,Tommy?

Top secret clearence
