Abstract : This report summarizes the work performed in designing, fabricating, and testing small-scale storable-propellant tanks. The design incorporates full-scale missile tank features and typical weld stresses. Fabrication and test procedures are based on simulated production tooling and on actual procedures used in the manufacture of production missiles. The tank designs are based on four different materials: 2014-T6 and 7039-T64 aluminum alloys, 17-7PH-TH1050 corrosion-resistant steel, and 6Al-4V annealed titanium alloy. Propellants to be stored include N2O4, 98% H2O2, ClF3, and Compound A. Tanks will be passivated at Edwards Air Force Base for receipt of propellants in accordance with specifications previously supplied. (Author)
