Abstract:

Recommendations are presented for lightweight brazed and welded fittings for use with rocket propulsion fluid systems. Joining procedures and preliminary designs have been developed for induction brazed and TIG welded fittings for tubing of AISI 347 stainless steel, AM 350 pre cipitation hardening stainless steel, and Rene 41 alloy. Studies have also been conducted on the feasibility of brazed and welded fittings for use with aluminum tubing. Procedures have been prepared and the required facilities are being installed for qualification testing of the fittings and joining processes during the Phase II part of this program. The fittings will be tested to rigid requirements under the Qualification Tests and other future efforts of th program and the results will be documented.
