Abstract:

A program was conducted to design and test a prototype composite flap for the hydrofoil ship PCH-1. The flap was to be of the same configuration and equivalent in structural capability to the existing HY-13O steel flap. Test work was done to investigate a material system and to fabricate and test a feasibility component. Based on the data generated, a final design was developed and a full size flap was fabricated. The flap was instrumented and installed on the PCH-1 for service testing. MM
