Abstract:

THE OBJECT OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO IDENTIFY THE POTENTIAL USES OF CASTABLE CEMENTITIOUS COMPOSITE MATERIAL IN ROLES SUCH AS FRAGMENT ARMOR, BUNKER PROTECTION OR HELICOPOTER ARMOR. THE MATERIAL SCIENCES EFFORT WILL BE CARRIED OUT AT CEMCOM; THE TEST EFFORT WILL BE CARRIED OUT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF DAYTON UNDER THE DIRECTION OF DR. STEPHAN J. BLESS. THE PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN CEMENTITIOUS COMPOSITE RESEARCH FOR OVER A DECADE AND WAS A PIONEER IN THE ORIGINAL CREATION OF A CLASS OF MATERIALS GENERICALLY KNOWN AS MACRO DEFECT FREE (MDF) CEMENTS. HIS EXTENSION OF THIS RESEARCH TO CEMENTMATRIX COMPOSITES CONTAINING GRADED CERAMIC AGGREGATES AS WELL AS METALLIC AND NON-METALLIC FIBER REINFORCEMENT STRONGLY SUGGESTS THE APPLICABILITY OF THESE MATERIALS AS LIGHTWEIGHT/INEXPENSIVE ARMOR OR EASILY FABRICATED CERAMIC ARMOR.
