Abstract

ABSTRACT: Material and Process Solutions propose to develop a modular stress-strain fixture for gap fillers and OML coating treatments in Phase I of this SBIR program. This fixture will combine the best attributes of various weapon systems custom gap assembly systems to one or two gap geometry standards. The modular design of the fixture(s) will be combined with an electromagnetic degradation effects panel and a low cost holding assembly that will facilitate concurrent stress strain fatigue testing in an environmental aging/conditioning chamber. BENEFIT: more realistic test to predict life cycles of coatings, low cost flex fixture,
