Igneous Fiber Reinforced Stealthy Armor for Submarine
Abstract: Igneous gem is a modified mineral glass without devitrification during processing, which is far stronger than traditional basalt materials comprising both glass and crystal phases. Fiber made by igneous gem is an ideal reinforcement for the armor of submarine, with advantages such as infrared stealth (thermal insulation), sonar stealth (anti-vibration), radar stealth (transparent to radar wave), heavy duty anticorrosion, bullet-proof (theoretical tensile strength 15,000MPa), fire resistant (working temperature 910 oC) and ultralow temperature resistant (working temperature up to -269 oC), anti-aging and so on. The corresponding experimental data and mathematical models were demonstrated in this study and compared with other high performance materials. The honeycomb structure was proposed for the prefabricated composite and the advantages of such a material were thoroughly stated.
