Abstract:

Strength tests were conducted on three identical assemblies of a proposed design for aircraft securing fittings for the CVA61 carrier with STS flight deck. None of the assemblies sustained the required ultimate vertical load of 25,000 lb. From the test results, all the fittings appear adequate for sustaining a vertical static load of 20,000 lb, but strains in the crossbars are very high at this load and failure by fatigue would probably occur after a very limited number of repeated loads of this magnitude.
