The 40th High Temperature Polymeric Laminate (High Temple) Workshop, administered by the University of Dayton Research Institute, will be held 3-6 February 2020, at the Hilton Sedona Resort at Bell Rock in Sedona, AZ. All sessions will be unclassified.
The High Temperature Polymeric Laminate (HIGH TEMPLE aka High Temple) Workshop was initiated in 1982 by a Tri-Service/NASA steering group composed of the following members: John Rhodehamel, AFWAL/MLSE; Jim Koury, AFRPL/MKAT; Terry St. Clair, NASA/Langley Research Center; Tito Serafini, NASA Lewis Research Center; Richard Thompson, U.S. Army Missile Command; and Charles Blackman, Naval Surface Weapons Center.
The first High Temple Workshop was administered by Ken Clayton, University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI). This workshop was cosponsored by the JANNAF Structures and Mechanical Behavior and Propulsion Costs Subcommittees and hosted by the NASA/White Sands Test Facility, NM, on 24-28 May 1982. The purpose of the workshop was to determine the state of development of high-temperature polymeric composites and establish an understanding of future technology needs and service requirements. Emphasis was placed on basic polymer chemistry, materials development, and materials applications. Presentation material was documented in Chemical Propulsion Information Agency Publication 358, dated June 1982.
