Abstract : The objective of this report is to hydraulically pressurize the internal diameter of one (1) 102mm Polymer Matrix Composite (PMC) over-wrapped cylinder up to 25,000 pounds per square inch (psi). During pressurization, in real time, collect and store pressure and strain data simultaneously. Strain data must be captured from the inside diameter of the oil filled metallic cylinder and from the outside diameter of the composite over-wrap material. Test data is to be provided to the customer and stored for further analysis.
