Abstract:

The production sheet metal material was evaluated against specification requirements. Rings were fabricated of the 0.021-in. thick mar- aging steel material for the first 3 pressure vessels. The first pressure vessel was assembled and tested successfully producing a burst strength 7.9 greater than that indicated by uniaxial tensile tests of the parent steel.
