CMSI Manufacturing of a Composite Ship Camel

CMSI provided design, engineering, and manufacturing, for this project addressing the specifications, and performance expectations of our client. These are single infusions, and VARTM process, weighing up to 8,000 lbs when complete. Each panel assembly can have up 800 individual parts including 196 individual stainless-steel plates. The stainless-steel plates are carefully drilled and tapped after infusion to provide the bolting features we need for mounting other external components in the final assembly. The final assembled product will use 196 panels of various sizes to complete two 235, 000 lb structures

Hillman Composite Beam - Superior Advancements in Bridge Technology

We know the limitations of traditional materials. We've partnered with HCB which combines the durability of Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites with the low-cost and functional advantages of concrete and steel. The result is a cost-competitive, resilient bridge system benefitting from the extended service life inherent in composite materials.

Hillman Composite Beam (HCB) | CMSI Solutions

The HCB combines the durability of Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites with the low-cost and functional advantages of concrete and steel. The result is a cost-competitive, resilient bridge system benefitting from the extended service life inherent in composite materials. The lightweight design provides added benefits for shipping and erection while using standard construction equipment and methods.

The fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) outer shell provides shear strength and encapsulates the tension and compression elements - the compression element is a concrete arch, the tension element is steel reinforcement that runs longitudinally the length of the beam and ties the two ends of the concrete arch together. Essentially, the HCB is a tied arch in a fiberglass box where 90 percent of the strength is provided by steel and concrete, ensuring an extended service life and minimal maintenance.

The HCB can be used wherever steel or concrete beams are used and particularly where structures are built are in highly corrosive or caustic environments. Currently, we are manufacturing beams with span lengths up to 120 feet (34m).

What is InfraCore technology?

InfraCore technology was developed specifically for building extremely robust panels, without internal gluing or bolted connections. The technology is based on the principle that there is continuous structural connection of glass fibers between the top and bottom of the structure. This prevents delamination and ensures that our bridge decking and wall panels retain their strength.
