The sustainer fuel and oxidizer lines are presently made using K-monel with subsequent age hardening. The age hardening process can result in flaws and cracks that are difficult to repair. A possible solution is to use these lines in the as welded condition, thus saving time and the cost of the age hardening as well as simplifying the task of repairing completed assemblies. The objective was to determine structural integerity yield and burst of the sustainer fuel and oxidizer lines in the as welded condition. Author
