New Energy-Absorbing Materials for Crash-Resistant Fuel Tanks 680210

This paper discusses the work that the Engineering Div. of Goodyear Aerospace Corp. has been conducting in energy-absorption and how this has been applied to new concepts in fuel containment.
The discussion includes various qualitative test methods and compares the test values of the material being investigated to standard fuel tank materials. Hopefully, these values will suggest new design approaches and test procedures for the improvement of fuel tanks, both in crash-resistance and puncture sealing ability.
