Abstract:

The report discusses the general modes of failure associated with typical cast foam panels currently being used in shelter applications. The idea of fiber reinforcing is qualitatively related to the modes of failure. Flexural stiffness calculations are made to qualitatively determine expected panel property improvements. The experimental work is discussed. Major manufacturing problems encountered are given and the solutions explained. Finally, recommendations for the direction of future research in this area are made. Author
