Abstract
THERMOPLASTIC COMPOSITES SUCH AS FIBERGLASS/PPS ARE STRONG, LIGHTWEIGHT, TOUGH MATERIALS SUITABLE FOR HARSH ENVIRONMENTS WHERE WEIGHT SAVINGS AND DURABILITY ARE REQUIRED. THIS PROGRAM IS DESIGNED TO APPLY THOSE BENEFITS TO TEMPORARY ROADWAY SURFACES FOR MILITARY BRIDGE SITE ACESS/EGRESS. AFTER A REVIEW OF PRIOR WORK, ESPECIALLY TESTING OF SANDWICH PANELS, IMPROVED PANEL UTILIZING FIBERGLASS/PPD SKINS, ALUMINUM HONEYCOMB CORE AND INTEGRAL TRACTION CLEATS WILL BE DESIGNED. SMALL SAMPLES WILL BE BUILT AND TESTED TO COMPARE DURABILITY WITH PREVIOUS DESIGNS AND MEASURE WEIGHT SAVINGS. A FINAL REPORT IS PROVIDED WHICH SUMMARIZES THIS EFFORT AND PROPOSES GUIDELINES FOR PHASE II DEVELOPMENT.
