Abstract : This paper deals with the development of a new plastic fabrication method, the Expanded Core process. The resultant products of this process have many unique combinations of features in comparison to other honeycomb structures. This new process, with variations, lends itself to numerous applications. Its chief advantage lies in the fact that low pressures are required which results in low capital costs. jg
