2 nd Prototype – Proposed Changes Add a bit more honeycomb(gap to side carbon tubes too large) Grind honeycomb flat before gluing to facing. Grind honeycomb to thickness after gluing one side to facing to improve thickness uniformity. Demonstrated on prototype piece Small increase in length of POCO foam(right up to outer closeout) Bond POCO foam/tube assembly to facings with Hysol 9396/30%(or more) BN instead of CGL-7018 => make rigid connection between foam and facing. Use bond-line control (the equivalent of 75 micron little shims) Modify U-section of POCO foam to allow for tube contraction as result of the above Reduce size of closeouts Bond closeouts with bond line control(glass beads) Decide about precision location of carbon tubes – try it on this prototype? Some minor tooling modifications to make assembly easier Currently scheduled for assembly Dec. 1-12
