Abstract:

The test program purpose is to characterize a singular graphiteepoxy system with the data divided into two categories baseline data and environmental effects data. The purpose of the baseline data is to provide the basic materials, bonded and mechanical joint data, and fundamental configuration data at room, elevated, and subzero temperatures to support the design of graphiteepoxy airframe structural components. These data are augmented by the environmental effects data, which will establish the influence of the operating environment of high-performance aircraft on the design allowables of the graphiteepoxy system studies.
