Abstract : This paper presents an overview of the present state of technology for reinforced plastic materials related to the ocean engineering field. Typical marine applications are described. Information and references are presented on fabrication and properties of high strength, filament wound plastic materials, pertinent to deep-depth pressure hull and buoyancy applications. Problem areas are discussed and future composite material improvements are projected. Much of the data presented has been developed through an extensive R & D programme sponsored by the Naval Ship Systems Command.
