Abstract:

The annual report describes highlights of the activities, and progress of the MIL-HDBK-5 program from February 15, 1973, through February 15, 1974. The Military Standardization Handbook, MIL-HDBK-5B, Metallic Materials and Elements for Aerospace Vehicle Structures, is recognized as the primary source for design allowable data by the Department of Defense DoD and other Government agencies responsible for aerospace vehicle design. The Handbook contains design allowable data on metallic materials, fasteners, joints, and other structural elements. A fatigue data consolidation and statistical analysis procedure was developed. The method of analysis was tested on collections of fatigue data for 2024 and 7075 aluminum alloys, Ti-6Al-4V alloy, and 300M steel with generally good results. Topics studied include fracture toughness stress corrosion and stress strain relations.
