This report summarizes the work performed in designing, fabricating, and testing small-scale storable propellant tanks. The design incorporates full-scale missile tank features and typical weld stresses. Fabrication and test procedures are based on simulated production tooling and on actual procedures used in the manufacture of production tankage. The tank designs are based on four different alloys. Five tanks were produced from each alloy. The alloys were 7039 aluminum alloy 2021 aluminum alloy Inconel 718 corrosion resistant alloy and A-286 corrosion resistant alloy. The tanks will be filled with CLF5 at the Rocket Propulsion Laboratory and stored in the RPL Storability Test facility.
