Abstract:

This report covers structural tests to evaluate rigid foam plastics shelters. Based on the test results, it is concluded that a It is feasible to fabricate structural members by using fiberglass polyester skins over either polyurethane core or paper honeycomb core. b Bonding between the skins and the core material is of utmost importance in stressed-skin design.
