AbstractThe objective of this SBIR Phase I program is to develop innovative lightweight mine-protected fastener design concepts as well as evaluate and identify potential off the shelf high performance metallic or composite fasteners to incorporate into the design. The success of the design will be demonstrated via computer modeling and simulation during this Phase I study. Our approach is to continue the success of many years research effeorts conducted by the University of Delaware, Center for Composite Materials (UD-CCM) and Army Research Laboratory (ARL) in optimizing joint design for composite structures under ballistic impact.
