Abstract:

A multiple-layered, translatedly rib-stiffened, composite hollow cylinder and method for fabrication thereof utilizing filament winding technique known in the art. Selective utilization of high strain-to-failure viscoelastic matrix material, without resort to secondary processing, results in improved damping characteristics in terms of dissipation of mechanical and acoustic energy as well as improved structural characteristics in terms of damage tolerance.
