Abstract:

THE PROPOSED WORK WILL INVOLVE EVALUATION OF ORDERED POLYMER SHEET AND TAPE-REINFORCED COMPOSITE STRUCTURES FOR APPLICATIONS SUCH AS ROCKET MOTOR CASES, PRESSURE VESSELS AND OTHER CYLINDRICAL COMPONENTS. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROGRAM IS TO MAKE HIGH QUALITY FILM LAMINATES USING A FABRICATION PROCESS AMENABLE TO SCALE-UP. TEST SAMPLES WILL BE MADE, TESTED AND COMPARED WITH OTHER HIGHER PERFORMANCE COMPOSITE MATERIALS. FMI HAS DEVELOPED PROCESSING METHODS FOR MAKING HIGH STRENGTH HIGH STIFFNESS TAPES AND SHEETS FROM PBT (POLY P-PHENYLENE BENZOBISTHIAZOLE), AN ORDERED ROD-LIKE POLYMER PROCESSED FROM LIQUID CRYSTAL SOLUTIONS. PBT TAPE CAN PROVIDE PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT BY VIRTUE OF EXCELLENT MECHANICAL PROPERTIES, THERMAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL RESISTANCE, AND THE GEOMETRIC EFFICIENCY OF TAPE REINFORCEMENT OVER FIBER-REINFORCED COMPOSITES. THE PROPOSED PHASE I PROGRAM WILL EVALUATE PBT TAPE LAMINATES AND METHODS FOR PRODUCING ROCKET MOTOR CASES AND OTHER CYLINDRICAL STRUCTURES.
