Abstract
THE NEED TO REDUCE WEIGHT IN REENTRY VEHICLE (RV) DESIGNS HAS BECOME A CRITICAL ISSUE WITHIN THE RV DESIGN COMMUNITY. AS SUCH, RV DESIGNERS ARE LOOKING TO THE USE OF HIGH STRENGTH TO WEIGHT RATIO MATERIALS SUCH AS THAT OFFERED BY GRAPHITE EPOXY AS A REPLACEMENT FOR THOSE STRUCTURAL MATERIALS CURRENTLY IN PLACE. THIS PHASE I PROGRAM SHALL INVESTIGATE THE IMPACT OF TYPICAL RV NUCLEAR HARDNESS REQUIREMENTS ON THE MATERIAL AND STRUCTURAL RESPONSE PERFORMANCE OF THESE CANDIDATE COMPOSITE MATERIALS.
