Abstract : This report covers the fabrication of two rigid foam plastics shelters by spray application of plastic resins to the inside surface of air inflated molds. The first shelter was constructed of sprayed polyurethane foam with steel rib reinforcement. The second shelter was constructed of sprayed glass fiber-polyester laminate with sprayed polyurethane core. The report concludes that the disadvantages of the spray method of fabrication far outweigh the advantages.
