Abstract:

Three materials, magnesium, plastics, and aluminum, were investigated for use in frame fabrication. Four materials, plastics, concrete, stabilized soils, and corrosion-resistant metals, were studied for deck use. Procedures stemming from the U. S. Marine Corps requirements resulted in the design and fabrication of an aluminum tent frame and in the procurement and test of two types of aluminum decks.
