Abstract:

The proposed development effort will use novel load transfer mechanisms to significantly increase the load carrying capacity of T-joints and Cruciform-joints for composite sandwich panels. The approach is to directly transfer load using core inserts or direct tension ties between panels. Many of the concepts involve advanced low-cost fabrication processes such as pultrusion and compression molding to form element of the joints. The program includes a study of enabling fabrication technologies, and a critical fabrication review by a shipyard. Static testing of selected joints will be performed.
