Abstract : Temperature-load conditions which would be placed upon adhesive bonded aluminum structures for use on the F-111 airplane in certain high temperature areas, has raised a question as to whether the permanent set of aluminum bonded sandwich components determined in previous tests is due primarily to the 2024 T-81 aluminum skins and 5052 aluminum alloy core or adhesive. If this can be determined, action can be taken to improve the structure in these high temperature areas. The purpose of these tests was to determine the permanent set on stainless steel beams with stainless steel core at 350 F under load. The permanent deformation of stainless steel sandwich beams at 350 F under load was determined, and based upon the results of this test, the core and skins of aluminum structures is considered a greater contributing factor to permanent deformation than the adhesive material.
