Research Institution
Composite Technology Development, Inc. (CTD) proposes to develop and demonstrate a novel hybrid composite material for application to lightweight chemical storage tanks for MDA applications. In Phase I, CTD will address the key feasibility issues for thenovel hybrid material, including long-term compatibility with chemicals of interest, mechanical robustness sufficient to withstand pressurization, impact, and mission loads, and fabrication process development. If successful, the proposed effort willresult in a new type of composite material that is suitable for fabricating lightweight, linerless, microcrack-resistant composite tanks for chemical storage and other applications. This new material technology will enable many commercial applications oflightweight, low cost composite tanks.
