Abstract:

The data presented indicate that wide steel sheets were produced with satisfactory metallurgical properties and to tolerances approximately half of the present standard width tolerances. Large diameter missile forward closures and aircraft bulkheads were formed from wide single sheets by explosive forming and shear forming. Missile motor cases which tested satisfactorily were produced by the roll-and-weld technique, from wide steel sheets using a single sheet in a 360-degree wrap. Author
