An investigation was made to evaluate the effect of a short time brazing cycle on the mechanical properties of 17-7PH stainless steel used in brazing honeycomb sandwich panels. The tensile properties of 17-7PH stainless steel were determined on .005-, .010-, .025-, and .063-in.-thick sheet material, heat treated according to a rapid brazing cycle. The test results indicated that close control of the aging temperature was necessary to obtain consistently the minimum tensile properties specified. Tensile, edge compression, flat compression, and shear beam test specimens from three 17-7PH steel brazed sandwich panels were tested. All three panels received a rapid brazing heat treatment. All the test results were above the minimum values specified.
