Abstract
A SERIES OF WELL CHARACTERIZED IM6/3501-6 COMPOSITE PLATES WILL BE EXPOSED TO CONTROLLED, WILL INSTRUMENTED JP4 POOL FIRES OF VARYING DURATION. FIRE EXPOSED PLATES WILL BE CHARACTERIZED USING PULSE-ECHO ULTRASONIC, MICROSCOPY, DSC, TAG AND MECHANICAL TESTING IN FLEXURE AND SHORT BEAM SHEAR. TEMPERATURE AND HEAT FLUX DATA COMBINED WITH COMPOSITE CHARACTERIZATION RESULTS WILL BE USED TO DETERMINE OPERATIVE DAMAGE MECHANISMS IN HEAT EXPOSED COMPOSITES. THE OBSERVED DAMAGE WILL BE CORRELATED WITH PULSE-ECHO NDI RESULTS TO DETERMINE ITS APPLICABILITY AS A FIELD INSPECTION TECHNIQUE.
