  • Publication number: 20210142774
    Abstract: Acoustic honeycomb structures that include cells in which a friction-locking insertion process is used to locate acoustic barriers within honeycomb cells to provide multiple degree of freedom (MDOF) acoustic liners having a variety of acoustic resonator depths. Solid polymer films are formed into acoustic barrier caps. The acoustic barrier caps are friction-locked and bonded to cell walls at one or more cell depths to form acoustically reflective hard walls that form effective bottom ends for acoustic resonators.

  • Patent number: 10947354
    Abstract: Composite honeycomb that may be contoured to form composite honeycomb structures, which have tight radii of curvatures and/or compound curvatures, and which are suitable for use in high temperature environments. The method for making the composite honeycomb involves using high temperature prepreg to make a flexible composite honeycomb that is formed into a composite honeycomb precursor. A high temperature coating resin is applied to the composite honeycomb precursor to form the high temperature composite honeycomb.
