AbstractThe objective will be to develop and evaluate a low density 6500 meter syntactic foam material capable of being man-rated with a composite density of 30 +2/-1 pcf. The syntactic foam will be capable of use on a 6500 meter operational depth Human Occupied Vehicle (HOV). The selected formulations will be tested for density, water absorption, crush pressure, compressive strength and modulus and shear strength. UDC will prove the feasibility and potential advantages of the new high performance, 30 pcf syntactic foam during this Phase I program. At the end of Phase I, a report with results and conclusions, and a Phase II plan will be submitted.
