With energy, there are multiple things to look at when choosing materials. The main thing to look at for today is PSI and heat resistance. The material I choose will need a high level of both. This is due to the way the reactor works. After searching for what regular materials use, I went online and found out this
“Materials currently in use or under consideration include:
- Boron Carbide
- Carbon fibre composite
Multi-layer tiles of several of these materials are also being considered and used, for example:
- A thin molybdenum layer on graphite tiles.
- A thin tungsten layer on graphite tiles.
- A tungsten layer on top of a molybdenum layer on graphite tiles.
- A boron carbide layer on top of CFC tiles.
- A liquid lithium layer on graphite tiles.
- A liquid lithium layer on top of a boron layer on graphite tiles.
- A liquid lithium layer on tungsten-based solid PFC surfaces or diverters.
Now although all these materials are good, I will either need to compress all of this or make the chest area from that. I may do both.
For dissipation, a vacuum (a vacuumless space may take in the heat. How will this be done? It’s kinda hard to explain, but it should work good for now. The heat will basically be pushed into said space by a cooling system like a computer (just more powerful) directing heat to the vacuum.
The main backup plan is to have multiple batteries around the suit and connect to where the arc reactor is. I can then pull the arc reactor out of the chest area and put into a hold at the back until further notice.
Some materials I may use is single Chrystal titanium and ceramic for protection AND heat resistance, tungsten solely for heat resistance and steel for a base. My insides will be protected by multiple layers of metals and meta-metals. The padding will be temper foam which is used by astronauts and Carbon Fiber Nomex which is basically protective padding if used right.
If a plastic is to be used, it will most likely be surrounded by metal and screwed into an electronic. This will thus unallow the pastic from damaging something and being functional.
The flight system will work by ion thrusters. Although they are very simplistic and may allow flight, the need a lot of power, so I will NEED that arc reactor. To have the flight so well, i'll need to bass boost the Ion thruster with electricity or so be it i'll use antimatter engines :-)
The exosuit will likely look something like a pack of small squares as that'll be nanobots, but that's a talk for a different day. There will also be the conventional pneumatic cylinder (which is basically something that uses air and a cylinder to increase in force.) but there will be a bit based on Pierre Bouchard
