Abstract : Recommendations are made for materials for rocket propulsion fluid system tubing and fittings based on literature survey of compatibility of materials with system fluids and effects of joining processes on the materials. Describes joining procedures, joint designs, prototype joining tooling, and successful qualification test program for induction brazed and for machine TIG welded joints in AISI 347 and AM350 stainless steel and Rene '41 tubing for machine TIG welded joints in 6061 aluminum tubing. Drawings, descriptions, and test requirements for fittings and joining tooling are included in the form of proposed specifications.
