Abstract:

The objective of this program was to investigate the feasibility of employing a BORSICAluminum composite structure for a propeller blade retention for an advanced-technology, 2000-shp, VSTOL propeller system. This was accomplished by the design of a one-half scale composite retention system, the fabrication of three test elements, and the fatigue test of this system, which is compatible with the 33LF propeller.
