A two-part Design Guide was compiled to provide technical information and data in the production of structural shapes and tubing for aircraft and aerospace requirements. Part I provides selection criteria for shapes and tubing based on availabilities, design tolerances, and mechanical and physical properties. Part II discusses manufacturing methods for fabricating structural shapes and tubing, namely, extrusion, drawing, and form rolling. Also Part II reviews competitive processes for manufacturing structural type components. This Design Guide is intended to assist design engineers in assessing the availability and properties of materials being considered in new or modified aircraft and aerospace systems, and to assist potential manufacturers and suppliers in assessing equipment, tooling, and processing requirements for fabricating structural shapes and tubing. Materials for aerospace requirements covered in the document include high-strength aluminum alloys, titanium alloys, steels, superalloys, refractory metals, and beryllium.
