DEVELOPMENT OF LIGHTWEIGHT, FIRE-RETARDANT, LOW-SMOKE, HIGH-STRENGTH, THERMALLY STABLE AIRCRAFT FLOOR PANELING

Extensive fire resistance and mechanical property tests were conducted on sandwich configurations composed of resin-fiberglass laminates bonded with adhesive to Nomex honeycomb and foam core. The test results were used to select a combination of materials that would improve the fire safety of the airplane without sacrificing mechanical performance of the aircraft floor panels. A test panel is being service evaluated in a commercial aircraft.
