results from analysis of boeing composite specimens flown on ldef experiment m0003Specimens of three selected organic/graphite fiber composite materials were flown on both the leading and trailing edges of LDEF. Additional sets of compression, tension, flexure, and lap shear specimens were flown on the trailing edge. A large T300/934 panel was flown on the leading edge. One quarter of this specimen was directly exposed to a near ram environment; each of the other three quarters were covered with a different thermal control paint. Results of mechanical, optical, and chemical analysis of the specimens are presented. Recession rates of the fiber and resin under atomic oxygen exposure were estimated and are reported.
