Abstract
U.S. Navy ships require the use of Hazardous Materials (HM) for daily shipboard operations. In order for Ship"s Force to work more efficiently NAVSEA approved the use of satellite storage lockers which are placed in the ship"s work centers, to store a seven day supply of daily use HM. Flammable and corrosive liquid storage lockers are constructed from heavy corrosion prone steel. In addition calcium hypochlorite (CH) is also required for emergency potable water purification. Calcium hypochlorite is currently stowed in modified first-aid lockers which are then mounted to the ship"s bulkheads. The first-aid lockers are constructed of aluminum and due to the oxidizing properties of CH, the lockers deteriorate quickly. The Navy is seeking a lightweight corrosion resistant alternative to aluminum construction for calcium hypochlorite storage lockers, as well as for steel flammable and corrosive liquid storage lockers. This project proposes to develop cost effective, lightweight, corrosion and fire resistant, durable composite satellite storage lockers that will meet all the structural, and environmental exposure design requirements for use onboard Navy ships. The composite lockers will be constructed from composite materials that will meet all Navy design requirements including fire, smoke and toxicity, and all environmental and chemical exposures.
