was doing some sideline research on Basalt glass, Dyneema and Spherex which has intriqued me since I stumbled on this thread of Holly’s/Delbert Pumpernickle from the archives…
I came across this little four part article on ACM (Advance Composite Materials) construction that was surprisingly a very easy read. Way easier than than that SP document. I found Part 2 and Part 3 especially enlightening based on some of the discussions us sandwich heads have been having lately on construction.
Bert, Greg, Airframe and Terry probably know all this stuff by heart already anyway
hope the other fellow OBECALP sando heads find some meat and mayo in the material below:
Everyone else please bypass as your brain might explode with all the terminology and propeller head discussion…
anyway here you go and hope at least some of you enjoy it…
Gonna add this to my stash of reference documents on disk project I got going…
“In this segment, we will continue the investigation of ACMs by taking a closer look at specific fiber materials used in ACMs.”
“In this segment, we will take a closer look at the matrix.”
a couple of timely quotes of their website I thought I’d also pass on, I really like these…
“Never express yourself more clearly than you are able to think.”
- Niels Bohr
Every morning I wake up saying, I’m still alive; a miracle. And so I keep on pushing."
- Jacques Cousteau
