AbstractThe proposed Small Business Innovative Research program will eliminate the hot/wet performance problems of carbon fiber/AFR-PE-4 composites by optimization of a polyimide matrix composite for F135/F136 thick component applications and service environment exposure conditions. Unmatched P2SI Team experience, AFR-PE imide chemistry, user input, and a sound Design of Experiments (DOE) will develop, demonstrate, and transition an optimized material that will improve manufacturing and service reliability, part yield, performance, increase the safety margin, and ultimately provide for lower cost, lower risk engine components to the F-35 program.
