This report documents the studies, testing, analyses, and development of mechanical properties of high temperature polymers for use in the design of laminated windshields and canopies for supersonic aircraft. Testing and data reduction were directed toward establishment of design allowables for polymers similar to MIL-HDBK-5B values for metals. Tests were conducted and design mechanical properties determined for static and bird impact loading conditions at the operating temperature extremes of a supersonic aircraft.
