Abstract:

Government-sponsored tungsten research and development efforts encompass a broad rage of technological activities. Typifying the extreme limits of efforts since January, 1960, studies have ranged from preparation of unalloyed metal to development of high-integrity fabricated shapes of tungsten-base materials. Nine major areas outline the broad over-all effort, and each is summarized within this report by brief technical discussions of 104 separate studies on 79 research programs. Included are preparation of metal, consolidation, primary and secondary working, joining, fabrication and performance of rocket nozzles, oxidation and other high-temperature reactions, protective coatings, properties, and physical metallurgy.
