Abstract

Experiments were conducted on woven E-glass/epoxy roll wrapped cylinders in three configurations; base composite, and base composite with a thin (100 % composite thickness) and thick (200 % composite thickness) polyurea coating. Each cylinder configuration was subjected to near-field UNDEX loading at charge standoff distances of 2.5 cm and 5.1 cm inside of a large diameter test tank. Results show that the application of a polyurea coating is effective for reducing damage in the cylinders.
