Pagination or Media Count:
The feasibility of fabricating a M113 composite road wheel by the filament winding process has been demonstrated. Theoretical results, showing road wheel deformation where subjected to a radial compression load, have been obtained for both the conventional and composite M113 road wheel. Experimental results, for radial compression tests, show correlation between theory and experiment. Concepts for reducing road wheel vulnerability to mine blasts are also presented.
