Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP DESIGN CONCEPTS FOR AIR FORCE ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT SHELTERS USING ADVANCED MATERIALS. THE PROJECT EFFORT WILL CONSIST OF FOUR TASKS: 1) DETERMINATION OF DESIGN CRITERIA, 2) SURVEY OF ADVANCED MATERIALS AND FABRICATION TECHNIQUES, 3) DEVELOPMENT OF DESIGN CONCEPTS AND 4 FINAL REPORT. IN TASK 1 THE DESIGN CRITERIA FOR ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT SHELTERS WILL BE DETERMINED. INCLUDED ARE FOUR AREAS: 1) CONFIGURATION (SIZE, SHAPE, WEIGHT, OPENING, ETC.), 2) COSTS (MATERIAL, FABRICATION, LIFECYCLE), 3) ENVIRONMENTAL (HEAT, RAIN, MOBILITY, DROPS, ETC.), AND 4) THREATS (CONVENTIONAL WARFARE AND NUCLEAR WARFARE). IN TASK 2 THE LATEST ADVANCES IN MATERIALS, ADHESIVES, SEALANTS AND BONDING TECHNIQUES WILL BE REVIEWED. IN TASK 3 THE RESULTS OF TASKS 1 AND 2 WILL BE INTEGRATED INTO DESIGN CONCEPTS: MINIMUN COST OR WEIGHT FOR ENVIRONMENT ONLY OR WITH THREATS INCLUDED FOR SEVERAL CONFIGURATIONS. EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE IN DESIGNING A FAMILY OF ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT SHELTERS FOR THE US ARMY HAS LED TO INTERNATIONAL RECOGNITION OF S I PERSONNEL AND WILL INSURE INNOVATIVE DESIGN CONCEPTS. IN TASK 4 A FINAL REPORT WILL BE PREPARED.
