Abstract:

This report includes Manufacturing Labs., Inc., Cambridge, Mass. PREFERRED ORIENTATION IN FLOW-TURNED B120VCA TITANIUM ALLOY SHEET, by S. V. radcliffe and E. S. Meieran. Dec 60, 19p. incl. illus. Subcontract to Pratt and Whitney Aircraft, East Hartford, Conn., Contract DA 19-020-ORD-5230 The results of work on the development of a high strength, lightweight, Ti alloy rocket case, are reported. These results include 1 tensile tests, chemical analysis, and microexamination of a press-forged pancake forging 2 techniques for hydrogenation of B-120VCA sheet stock 3 fracture toughness and modified Charpy impact tests on flow-turned material, 4 x-ray diffraction studies of cold-rolled and flow-turned material 5 tensile, bend, and fracture toughness tests of TIG and electron-beam welds and 6 tensile tests of pancakes forged at high and low strain rates.
