Abstract:

Not Available The Advanced Amphibious Assault Vehicle (AAAV) program office has challenged the advanced materials community to develop durable and lightweight concepts for some of the aluminum and steel components of the vehicle. In this proposal, we have assembled an integrated product team (IPT) of design engineers that are familiar with the performance requirements of the AAAV, and design considerations and manufacturing techniques unique to fiber reinforced composite materials. The objectives of the proposed work is to develop a list of AAAV components where the application of composite materials could reduce the weight by at least 30% and to provide confidence that these materials can meet the durability requirements of the vehicle. To accomplish these objectives, the IPT will conduct preliminary design and manufacturing studies for candidate components and conduct laboratory evaluations of structural elements. The IPT approach proposed here is designed to reduce risk and facilitate transition of the advanced composite designs from concept and prototyping stages into implementation on the AAAV.
