An Inexpensive Structural Core Material for Composite Bridges

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1996 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOT
Principal Investigator: Dale Ryan , President
Award Amount: $99,420.00
Abstract:
Polymer Bridge Systems, with over 8 years of research composite bridges, found that success hinges on being dollar-for-dollar cost competitive with steel and concrete. We founded the four "golden rules" that are required: the bridge must be: 1) factory build; 2) road transportable; 3) installed… More

A Kenaf Fiber Based End-Grain Sandwich Core Material for Composites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Dale Ryan
Award Amount: $79,600.00
Abstract:
The high cost of core material in the composites industry remains a significant barrier to expansion. Composite projects, designed to replace metal, concrete, or wood, especially large projects such as bridge decks, regularly fail when it comes to cost analysis. The composites industry, for fifty… More

A Kenaf Fiber Based End-Grain Sandwich Core Material for Composites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Dale Ryan
Award Amount: $0.00
Abstract:
NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: There is no inexpensive End-Grain Sandwich Core Material for Composites today. Balsa, as an end-grain cellulosic core, has had no competition since 1945. Balsa core is grown in Ecuador and needs to be imported to the U.S.A as well as all other countries. The introduction of an… More
