Abstract:

OVER 14,000 LB OF ALLOY SHEET WERE PRODUCED IN THE SOLUTION TREATED CONDITION, AND DISTRIBUTED THROUGHOUT THE AIRCRAFT INDUSTRY FOR DESIGN DATA COLLECTION AND FABRICATION STUDY. Each sheet produced was pedigreed as to its location within the ingot and mechanical property performance. These properties were analyzed statistically to provide criteria for establishing structural design information and possible specifications. Certain selected design properties were also developed. Ingot chemical homogeneity was established, and processing methods developed. Techniques for solution treating full size sheets were also developed. Most of the material produced was made by the hand sheet method. Strip processing methods were developed and a portion of the material was produced by this method. Special investigations were made on processing problems encountered during this program or on problems related to the use of these alloys by the aircraft industry. Author
