Abstract
A METHOD BASED ON THE PROCESSES OF COMPUTERIZED TOMOGRAPHY (CT) IS PROPOSED FOR NONDESTRUCTIVE, QUANTITATIVE MEASUREMENTS OF FIBER AND RESIN CONTENTS OF TWO-PHASE COMPOSITE SYSTEMS. RESEARCH IS PROPOSED FOR ESTABLISHING THE METHODOLOGY FOR USING CT TECHNIQUES IN ASSESSING KEVLAR-EPOXY OR GRAPHITE-EPOXY TYPE COMPOSITE MATRICES USED IN FABRICATING ROCKET MOTOR CASES. THROUGH A COMPREHENSIVE CT EXAMINATION OF A SET OF SAMPLES, AN EXTENSIVE DATA BASE WILL BE OBTAINED AND ANALYZED FOR DETERMINING THE DEPENDENCE OF DENSI TOMETRIC RESOLUTION ON THE TOMOGRAPHIC PROCESS PARAMETERS. COLLECTIVEINFORMATION OBTAINED WILL BE USED FOR DERIVING DESIGN GUIDELINES FOR AN OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE TOMOGRAPH FOR FIELD APPLICATIONS.
