Foam over Air Inflatable Structure Feasibility Study
Technical Report,23 Apr 1973,30 Jul 1973
NAVAL AMMUNITION DEPOT CRANE IN CRANE
Pagination or Media Count:
A study has been conducted to determine the feasibility and practicality of using dual- wall air inflatable sections as forms upon which can be constructed and fabricated a rigid foam shell that will be self- supporting and capable of withstanding cer- tain conditions of environmental stress such as wind and snow loading. The study also provided for the acquisition and com- pilation of data regarding equipment, tools, materials, mold releases, protective coatings and structural design. These data were compiled from laboratory studies, literature from industry, personal interviews and practical experience in applying rigid foams in various situations.
