Abstract:

The report summarizes the program to establish cost-effectiveness criteria and to develop parametric data for friction welding of missile-systems hardware. A cost-effectiveness criteria checklist and summary of friction weldable materials are provided. Empirical models governing friction welding of thin-walled maraging steel structures were developed. Metallurgical, mechanical, and geometric aspects of friction welding 18Ni250 maraging steel and 7075-T6 aluminum tubes are discussed. Mechanical property, friction-welding parameter, and thermal-history data are presented.
