Date/Pages: September 2000; 42 pages
Abstract: This report discusses the materials selection for and fabrication of novel "bumper" and skirt panels for an experimental ground vehicle improvement project. These components were fabricated from E-glass reinforced polyurethane resin so that they would have a unique combination of rigidity and flexibility required for successful field use. Alternative components for future consideration are discussed, and some initial work on adhesive bonding of polyurethane matrix composites is presented.
