Reinforced Aluminum Composites for Underwater Systems



Recent advances in the technology of reinforced-aluminum composites have led to increased government and commercial interest, but very few data are available on their design, development, and manufacturing. Our challenge was to select, design, fabricate, and test a component that would demonstrate the advantages of reinforced-aluminum composites and then project these advantages into underwater systems to show improvements in performance, a reduction in system life-cycle cost, or both.
