Abstract : This report discusses the fabrication, machine flawing, and testing of 18-inch diameter filamentwound bottles. The objectives of the study program under this contract are to study the effects of surface flaws on the performance of Polaris motor cases, to compare the effect of winding sequence on the ability to resist failure from surface flaws, and to determine the reliability of various repair techniques.
