Abstract:

The results of flat-sheet tensile tests made at different laboratories are re-examined and put on a comparable basis. The materials represented are 7075-T6 clad, 2024-T3 clad, 2014-T6, and 2219-T87 aluminum alloys, and 17-7PH stainless steel. Curves are presented in a form usable by designers. One investigation was concerned with the fracture strength of cylindrical pressure vessels made from 2024-T3 and 7075-T6 aluminum alloys. The data from this investigation are put on the same basis as the flat-sheet data so that comparisons can be made. Conclusions from the data studied in this memorandum are presented and suggestions for additional testing are made. Author
