Request for Quotation: Laboratory Material and Component Level Testing

April 6 @ 12:00 pm EDT

Solicitation #: 6913G620Q300041

“The Volpe National Transportation Systems Center (Volpe) is currently conducting a study to establish experimental testing procedures and develop a finite element analysis (FEA) framework that can be used to evaluate the performance and determine the specifications of cargo tank motor vehicles (CTMV) made with fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) materials.”

“This Statement of Work solicits engineering testing services to obtain general and mechanical properties. The general properties include constituent content, density, thickness, etc. The mechanical properties include anisotropic elasticity, anisotropic strengths, impact strength and toughness, fatigue performance, etc. The material parameters obtained in these tests are crucial for the FEA and performance evaluation of full scale FRP CTMVs, to be conducted in Phase II of the Volpe study.”

Due date: 06 April 2020, 12:00 p.m. EDT
