Abstract:

The results of several investigations dealing with the design technology of advanced composites are reported. Experimental work was conducted on Hercules graphiteepoxy prepreg in two forms AS13501-6 unidirectional tape and A370-5H3501-6 fabric. The investigations examine damage tolerance of cylinders, shear buckling, unsymmetric laminates, aeroelastic behavior, and several other topics. In addition, the major accomplishments and benefit of this five year program are highlighted. Author
