Abstract:

The objective of this program was to establish design criteria on the dynamic compatibility of liquid and gaseous fluorine and chlorine pentafluoride with designated metals. Eleven metallic materials of construction were included in the program 301 cryoformed, 304L, 321 and 347 stainless steel A-286 super alloy steel 2219 and 6061 aluminum OFHC copper Monel K-500 Inconel 718 and Nickel 200. Six tests were used to obtain the data required to establish the design criteria 1 maximum velocity, 2 adiabatic compression U-tube, 3 liquid impact, 4 flexingfilm degradation, 5 vibrationfilm degradation, 6 liquid phase shock wave. An extensive literature survey and critical review were conducted in conjunction with the experimental portion of the program.
