Abstract : Alternate layers of an external fluid impervious member, and of internal perforated honeycomb core members, perforated face sheet members, and fine wire mesh screen members are bonded together to form an integrated assembly, in the form of a sandwich panel, which can be contoured to any desired preselected shape. The core members and the face sheet perforations allow a fluid to fill the honeycomb cores, while the screen members act as a retention (surface tension) system to keep any vapor present from penetrating to the liquid-filled cores.
