Abstract:

This report describes the work accomplished on a research program being conducted to finalize development of a system of equipment and procedures designed to accomplish installation of permanent connectors in rocket fluid tubing systems. The operating characteristics of prototype tools developed under a previous contract were reviewed and the required design changes were identified. The tooling requirements divided into two basic areas 14- to 3-inch OD range tubing with wall thickness up to 0.093 inch, and 1- to 16-inch OD range tubing with wall thickness in the 0.050- to 0.500-inch range.
