Abstract:

A new method of brazing in the 2000 to 3000 F temperature range referred to as the Con-Rad Process, was developed. Using this process, several 1 x 1, 6 x 6, and 12 in. x 12 in. brazed niobium alloy and diffusion bonded titanium sandwich panels were produced. Three of the brazed niobium alloy panels were cut into smaller test specimens. Room temperature and 2000 F edge compression tests indicated 100 braze joint efficiency. The elevated temperature use of such structure will be limited by the strength of the skin material, and not by the strength of the braze. Author
