Abstract:

HIGH PERFORMANCE POROUS MATERIALS ARE NEEDED FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF LAMINAR FLOW TECHNOLOGY. LAMINAR FLOW CONTROL IN AIRCRAFT COULD PROVIDE FUEL SAVINGS UP TO 20%. IN SUBMERSIBLES, THIS TECHNIQUE WILL REDUCE BOTH DRAG AND RADIATED NOISE. COMPOSITE MATERIALS HAVE ADVANTAGES FOR UNDERSEA SUBMERSIBLES: THEY PROVIDE HIGH STRENGTH, ARE NON-CORRODING, NON-MAGNETIC AND ARE READILY MOLDED. COMPOSITES CAN HAVE HIGH INTERNAL DAMPING TO REDUCE RADIATED NOISE. THE CHALLANGE ADDRESSED BY THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP A RELIABLE AND ECONOMIC MEANS OF CREATING SMALL PORES IN A COMPOSITE LAMINATE. THREE VARIATIONS OF A NOVEL TECHNIQUE WILL BE USED TO FABRICATE POROUS COMPOSITE TEST CYLINDERS. SURFACE WAVINESS AND FINISH WILL BE MEASURED AND FLOW CHARACTERISTICS WILL BE EVALUATED.
